From commentor Max:
As the folks in NOVA were reporting down in comments, the fabled meteor shower was a total bust. I saw two brief (lasting maybe as long as one second) faint traces out of the corner of my eye that might have been very very small meteors around 1:30 AM. Otherwise, zip. The seeing was fine, so this is a nice star field view from 4:17 AM with nothing in the way of meteors. Saw way more planes than anything, and honestly, the meteor count was low for sitting outside off and on for three odd hours overnight when there is no big meteor shower. Zip. Bupkis. Nada.
Too cloudy here north of Boston to see stars, much less meteorites, and reports from the NASA livestream discouraged the Spousal Unit from driving out towards the coast in hopes of clearer skies.
Apart from the small disappointments to which all life is heir, what’s on the agenda for the day?
