I went out the last three nights to look at the Persied Meteor Shower. I just went to a nearby open field so there was still plenty of light pollution and we had partially cloudy skies. But I did manage to see some. Mostly faint wisps that you weren't really sure were actually there. Tonight there were others nearby and I could hear them say "there's one" when I saw something too, so I knew it was there. I saw one real bright one though it was more towards the western sky than I was expecting. I saw another one there too but it turned out to be a firefly. I don't think the first one was. Really, it wasn't.
