I went out last night with my daughter to watch the Perseid meteor shower. We drove a little ways out of town to get away from the light pollution and sat back to watch the sky. We saw about 20 in the hour we were out. I took my camera with me, but didn't manage to capture any of them. Never had the camera pointed in the right direction, with the shutter open at the right time. Oh well. I still took a couple of nice photos - and, what's more important, I had a good time with my girl.
