Did any of you view the meteor shower last night?
I did a little research and read that the best viewing time would be at 2:00 a.m. and the best method would be to lay flat on your back with an unobstructed view of the sky.
I crept out of bed at the appropriate time and quietly opened the front door. I thought about the back yard being more private since it is surrounded by a privacy fence, but there are so many trees back there that I didn’t think I would be able to get a good view.
I could see that it was a clear night and I walked out into the yard a little way to find a good spot. I was planning to wait until I was sure there would be a good show before waking anyone else up.
That’s when I started thinking, “What if I lie down and fall asleep? And don’t wake up until, say, 6:30? What if someone sees a woman lying motionless in her front yard and calls the police? And they come to check it out? Then file a police report? And it ends up in the local paper?”
All police reports end up in our local paper. Including names and addresses.
That’s when I turned around and went back to bed without seeing a single shooting star.
So, did any of you see it?
