Poolside Perseids

August 13, 2010

Mostly since arriving in Arizona I have gone to bed early and gotten up early. This fits in well with the jetlag, but also means you have several hours in the morning when its bearable to be outside. (105 degrees this week).

However tonight I made an exception because it seemed the right thing to stay up late and watch for Perseids. I am obviously not alone, because the great Twitter meteorwatch was so popular it crashed the server. It was also a popular idea amongst meeting attendees today, and indeed the done thing was to watch the meteors floating on your back in the hotel swimming pool. With a beer.

Could have been you, Keith.

Anyhoo, must go to sleep now.  Up bright and early for the Blandford Show.
