Palms & Perseids

When I went out in the backyard I was so enamored with the big dipper sitting on top of the house’s roof line that even though it was bed time I went to the trouble to set up the camera for the purpose of capturing that scene. And after failing to do that to any satisfaction I then pointed the camera  straight up between our two palms and left the shutter open for several minutes hoping an errant Perseid meteor might wander across the frame (click to quadrify):


As you can see, none showed up. And that’s because had I checked with Clifford first I would’ve learned I was a little too early in that the next shower is scheduled  for pre-dawn Monday.
