In my back yard there’s a sort of little valley that when you lie in it makes a sort of natural seat, a hard and grassy chair. Tonight I’ll lay out a blanket and bring some snacks and pillows (and mosquito repellent), and sit there in the darkness waiting.
This weekend is the Perseid meteor shower, typically the best and brightest show all year. Prime viewing locations are North America and Western Europe.
