Perseid Meteor Shower 2010
I got up in the pre-dawn morning to catch the peak of the Perseid shower and had a nice time viewing this year. Skies were filled with patches of clouds when I went to sleep on the couch. My watch alarm went off at 3am and I got up to perfectly clear, dark skies. The viewing was great this year and I counted 31 with 3 of them being nicer bright ones in about 45 minutes of sitting on the deck. I tried to get a lucky capture on the camera again this year but wasn't able to have it pointed the right direction at all this time.
