Now I can't sleep. The article mentioned we'd be able to catch it for a few days after the weekend. I'll wait.

i thought the best time to see it was tonight/today?


"The meteors in this shower all appear to emanate from the constellation Perseus. The best times to watch will be late night Aug. 12 through dawn Aug. 13."

Last night would've been perfect. My girlfriend and I spent a very romantic midnight since she really wanted to give me a birthday kiss right on the dot so we just spent a nice night at my house. That would've been perfect. Oh well...
