Thought of the Day 2010 #181 - Perseid Meteor Shower

The last couple of nights, we've been out in the desert, about an hour from Salt Lake city. It was a far enough distance to be relatively free of the city's light pollution in order to catch a good glimpse of Perseids shooting across the sky. Last night was gorgeous -- quiet, lots of meteorites, and clear skies, but a bit on the chilly side. Tonight was equally ripe with meteorites although we were out much earlier than peak time. There were a couple of problems, though -- lots of four wheel traffic and large, low flying bats. I can deal with cold, noise and traffic, but bats buzzing six inches overhead made for a short evening. They really need to learn some flying manners...
