Perseid meteor shower

Perseid meteor shower

Played my final ball hockey game of the season. More bruises. Blocked two shots. Ouch. Ouch. It is looking good for us to play in at least one final game in a week.

It was a perfectly clear night in Bolton to watch the Perseid meteor shower. I laid down in my backyard and waited, and waitedโ€ฆ the shower was more like a trickle. I think over 35m of watching I saw about 6 or 7 meteors. Kinda underwhelming. I couldnโ€™t find an ideal time to watchโ€ฆ *shrug*
