Observing the Perseid Meteor Shower

If the weather is clear, meet to view the Perseid Meteor Shower from a dark sky site. Telescopes are of little value as the meteors move very quickly. A good pair of binoculars may be of help.
The best thing to bring may well be a good recliner chair!
It's a Monday night, but if you can make it, and the weather is clear, we may be in for a good show.

    The skies cleared nicely for both telescope viewing and seeing a number of meteors.

    I got up at 4:30 this morning and was treated to a descent Perseid shower with 4 very nice fire balls and numerous small meteors. I can't remember EVER seeing the Perseids from Lutz this good.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
