Free Light Show
We sat out in the backyard after dark and watched the meteor shower. After the heat of the day it was a comfortable 76 degrees. How wonderful to watch the sky darken and the stars come out. Eventually we could see the Milky Way directly overhead. We saw so many 'shooting stars' we lost count. It was fun to be talking along when all of a sudden one of us would cry out, "There's one!" Even though many of them lasted long enough to call the other's attention to it, I never remembered to make a wish.
Here's a link to the schedule if you don't happen to be in Northern California. Admission is free!
