Disappointment in the Skies

Hmmm – I wonder what I did wrong. Last night at about 10 o’clock, my blanket and I settled into a chaise on one of our back decks. I was gazing skyward to see the much talked about meteor shower. According to CBC Radio, I was supposed to watch for peak activity around 10:40, looking to the east/north-east. However it was a bit of a disappointment. I did see four or five streaks across the sky, but that was about it.

Apparently other people captured it though, including the folks from SETI. Here’s one of their photos:
