The last few years, I've gotten to watch the Perseids meteor shower pass through the skies over my house at night. Or should I say morning? I've set my alarm for 2 or 3am sometimes. Luckily, we have a pretty comfy hammock, so that helps. But it's ALWAYS worth it.
This video shows Perseids over Mt. Rainier. Incredible!
This year, the peak viewing time for Seattle is August 13th. I will be there, praying for clear skies and welcoming the wonder.
