Fellow astronomy buffs may be aware that there was a meteor shower last night (and a few nights previously), and last night I gloried in it. However, stunning as it was, the spectacle was not limited to just that. On top of the Perseid shower, we, as a family, enjoyed the sight of the ISS going overheard, as well as a possible sighting of Mars - although that last one I'm not sure of. But to cap it all off, I finally managed to see, with a high degree of surety, the Milky Way. It wasn't really much, and could have been mistaken for a smudge of high, light cloud, but it's something that I've been wanting to see with my own eyes for as long as I've been into stargazing.


Mars doesn't come up until around 5 AM right now. Were you up that early/late? Glad you got to see the shower though! There was a thunderstorm last night so I couldn't see it. I was able to catch a few shooting stars the nights before though!


I was, yes. It's a habit to.stay.up.all night watching the showers. After an hour or so the eyes become.fully.accustomed to the darkness and you can see so much more. It's one of my greater pleasures in life. Glad you managed to catch a few!

@Hogy even on the edge of my town it's hard to see the Milky Way, so.I do.envy you. There's a website that sends me emails as to when the ISS is overhead. If you think this would overcome.your difficulty, I could link you?

^I didn't know they had a website like that so thanks for the info. I'm sure finding it should be "walk in the park".

Well, just in case you haven't looked yet, it's http://spotthestation.nasa.gov/. It covers most, if not all, countries, and though it doesn't list all cities (it doesn't list mine) that doesn't really matter, as selecting the closest works, too.

I was watching a seven day auction on Ebay with only one bid on the first day. Which of course means that it will blow up at the last minute. I waited until the last 30 seconds of the auction to put in my bid and some fool with an auto bidder got in the last ten seconds, but I won by 50 cents.

I hate ebay. But I'm happy that I got my item!

Congratulations, Padmé!

@Dog: Yeah, that's incredibly annoying. Tried for a month to get a new lens on eBay. For a month, I got outbid at the last second. Every single time. Finally I decided to just buy one at a slightly higher cost, but for form's sake I put in a bid on one last lens. Turns out that I won it. Rolling Eyes

I won a goldfish at a fair. I have named him Holden.

Yup. There was a carousel and a baseball diamond at the fair and it made me think of the book.

He doesn't seem to want to eat right now though. Confused
