For the stargazers

July 28th and 29th will be peak viewing time for the delta aquarid meteor shower. It is best viewed after midnight, and up to 20 meteors could be visible per hour. Kurt and I got an early view in Michigan when we each spotted several last weekend. One spanned nearly 20 degrees across the sky, making it the largest I'd ever seen. Hopefully the clouds will clear here in Indy, so we can catch some more. If not, there's always the Perseids next month.

Oh hey Ms. Rebecca!

First of all, you're "following" my art diary!!! Heheh, that is so cool of you.

Secondly, hooray for meteor showers! My friends and I had the chance to check out the Leonid meteor showers some years back, and I was like making a wish every 10 mins or so, hahah. But so far, I'm still waiting for all of them to come true :(. Good day!

I've never had a chance to view a meteor shower. It's always cloudy on the night they're supposed to appear. Maybe this time ...
