A couple nights ago, the Perseid meteor shower peaked. On a cloudy, rainy day. But as the sun went down, the clouds cleared to the west. So we drove out to Utah Lake.
It was full of bugs, and not the best place for stargazing, but we did lay down, stare at the night sky for an hour or so, and watch some meteors go by. There was only one great bug impressive meteor, but many smalls ones. And the Milky Way was visible.
We got home very late, with just over 66% of the children falling asleep during the 15 minutes drive back to the house. And everyone slept in the next morning.
