The Meteor Shower was not a Total Bust
Our friend Mike Skywatcher camped out in his secret observatory west of Lansing from 2AM until dawn this past Saturday. He says he had a hat, gloves, thermos and two cameras ready to capture the spectacular meteor sky show that had been predicted, but only saw three meteors. Sounds like sky-watchers across the land were rather disappointed, though there was a pretty good showing in Indiana and parts of Canada.
Our consolation prize from Mike Skywatcher's adventure was this lovely picture of Venus and the moon at dawn. Thank you, Mike!
