Not my picture but from Jason Weingart's photography.
The last time I tried to really watch a meteor shower was by myself. There wasn't much going on that night and I ended up falling asleep on the porch and underneath the stars in VA.
Any other annual meteor shower since then has been missed since I was working nights. But without work I was able to see the Perseids this year.
I made the suggestion to my huband as we had already seen both the 2017 solar total eclipse and a lunar eclipse together. He agreed so we set out to deliver some library books back to the drop-off then chose to go out to find a darker spot.
My husband took us to Teepee Junction where we pulled up outside the main building. As we put back the sun roof and settled in we were soon treated to the best one of all with a really nice long meteor right above the car where we could see it.
From there he showed up to have better eyes and a greater chance of looking at the right portion of the sky thus seeing more. But there were several that we did view together whether small or brightly pronounced.
After a while we called it quits since a large bank of clouds floated up from the south blocking out the view of the clear skies above us.
But as a leaving treat my husband saw one more before we drove back into town.
As for me I love sharing experiences and beauty of nature like this with my husband since he is so appreciative while going with the flow for me. It also shows me more about the man I married and what can certainly catch his attention.
