YOU were up at 3 am? Wow, I am impressed. Unless of course you had already been to bed and were getting an early start on the day - now that I can understand.

You can have my dog. His snoring will wake you up all night long.

It must be a Yellow Lab thing. Jan thinks I taught Gracie (our Yellow Lab) to make trhose sounds.

About the early morning wake up. In a previous thread a member told about generator thieft in the area where we were camped. When the dogs woke up and barked at 3am I did not want to ignore it. I went outside to find the meteor shower with a flashlight in one hand and a loaded 9mm in the other.

So there could have been shooting stars of another type that very same evening. Glad that wasn't the case and you got to view some of natures more spectacular offerings. We can't carry anything but a baseball bat for those outside trips late at night to investigate noises which is often a bit disturbing. Having a canine companion would be a significant asset. And make for a great sidekick although if I keep "coaching" my wife on her driving I might find myself at a rest stop wondering where her, the TV, the trailer, and the new sidekick disappeared to......

Unfortunately we live just outside of Vancouver, BC so the city lights wipe out the vast majority of night time sightings. When we are out camping in the mountains the sky at night is unbelievable and we spend a lot of evenings just watch the shooting stars, satellites and trying to pick out the various formations.

We go camping at least once a month and I am always amassed at the number of stars one can see when away from the city lights. Any time I can look up and see the milky way, it makes my day!

Peeps?

You guys are cracking me up with your "peeps" mascot.

What is the story behind it?

I enjoy looking at the stars too. I became hooked back in college when I took an astronomy class. We are lucky where we live in that there aren't many lights so I can see the constellations, stars and planets on clear nights after dark.

We live in the Pacific North West. I was just wondering what a "clear night" is? We had some of those this year, but not many. It was a wet one over all and for the first time I can remember my lawn did not burn completely brown through the summer.

IMHO there's few things much better than being out camping with a group of friends, sitting around a campfire, and looking at the stars. Those people who do not camp do not realize what it is they are truly missing - not just the ability to meet great people, but to also realize just what a real light show is all about out in the heavens (is it still PC to call it that?)

Thumbs up You haven't seen

IMHO you haven't seen anything, till you have seen the Northern Lights @ -20. Colors of the rainbow moving across the skies, coming & going right above. Warms the soul even at -20.
Best,
