Headed for darker skies in hopes of seeing some falling space dust. It did not disappoint! :y:

The estimates of 60-120/hour were well short of what we actually saw. The longest I counted without seeing one was 65 seconds, and most other times it was not more than 10-15 seconds between them, and several times there were more than one simultaneously.

Definitely worth a midweek night in the desert!

I took four photos. Two managed to capture a streak in the direction of the camera, bright enough to be seen in what was otherwise a 30 or 60 second exposure. I have absolutely no idea how to take star and meteor photos! :lol:
