The annual Perseid Meteor Shower was this past weekend and it was the first time in about 25 years since the skies were as dark as they were this year (no Moon). The peak, which is generally around the 12th of August, also happened to be on a weekend this year. We packed our toy hauler and the kids (and our new puppy, Benny!) and rolled us out to the desert for some good viewing where the light pollution was minimal. We setup the patio on the trailer, threw out some blankets and pillows and watched shooting stars fill the night sky, We had a blast. I didnt catch any pictures of our viewing party but here are some video of my daughters on their quads while we were out there.
