After a delightful weekend, it’s back to work. Saturday night, we drove to Dinosaur Valley State park and sat at the entrance in the dark to watch the Perseid meteor shower with a few other random star geeks who found their way there as well. The Dallas-Ft. Worth metroplex is dreadfully light polluted, but out at the park (in Glen Rose) we could actually see the Milky Way, and we were able to see quite a few good meteors.
It was all quite last-minute jump-in-the-car-and-go, but if I had planned ahead, a thermos of this tea would have been perfect. Warm and cocoa-y!
There are more meteor showers to be seen this fall and winter, and for once, hubby said he’d be willing to camp with me if it means seeing meteors. Woohoo!
