  1. You know what? I think that every single time* there’s a meteor shower, we’ve got cloudy nights. It’s awfully frustrating.

    Except last August. After talking about it for 26 years, we finally caught the Perseids. Too bad it was a rather chilly night.

    1. What a shame to have the weather interfere with the sky! I’ve watched various events (eclipses, meteor showers, etc.) online – but that can never compare to the real thing. I hope you’ll have clear night skies for all of this year’s celestial events.

      1. So do I! It’s become a bit of a running joke, actually. Seeing the Perseids last summer was great. Even though the Nordic summer nights only are dark enough for one hour.
