Perseid Meteor Shower
Mike and I tried to watch the meteor shower last night, without much success. If the clouds keep away, I plan on taking the kids out near the surrounding corn fields for better viewing tonight. The showers will be at their peak after midnight. This is one of our favorite meteor showers to watch and we try to do it every year. In the past we were all able to lie on top of the trampoline. Since we haven't replaced our old trampoline yet, we will be using blankets on the ground. A sheet over everyone's body will help keep the mosquitoes at bay. Happy viewing!
