I fell asleep and did not see this spectacular meteor shower last night but I understand it can also be seen tonight 8/13/15. Conditions are supposed to be really good for skygazers to see this. There is supposed to be another meteor shower in December. Astronomers strongly recommend watching far from cities for the best view. Did anyone see this last night?

I certainly did not Marcy, I was out like a light after taking a shower and brushing teeth ahaha I am not surprised you did not catch it either after your busy day yesterday.

There was a thunderstorm here last night. I saw many meteors last week-end (we had a festival called "the night of the stars"). It is not too late. The maximum was yesterday, but you can go outdoors tonight or tomorrow, and you will see some meteors too.

I was totally unaware of the event and obviously it is a little late for me to watch now. The one thing that I have never understood about meteors is why they always land in craters. There must be a logical explanation for this, but it completely eludes me.

@Asylum I have no idea why they land in craters either but maybe someone can explain it.

@Marcyaz It seems rather odd, but there must be a logical reason.

I actually forgot all about the meteor shower. I wish i would have remembered. I would have told my kid to get the telescope and look. But, it is passed now. Oh well.

I did not watch it either. I did see the beautiful moon a few nights ago though. It was spectacular and looked so close.

I did! I did! The sky here was SO clear last night and the stars seemed so close. I wrapped myself up and sat out in the field and watched the sky for about an hour. It was magical! Some of the meteors seemed to be coming right at me, while others just streaked across the sky like bullets! I wouldn't have missed it for the world!
