Last night we took a quick road trip up to Lost Maples State Natural Area to attend a star party, with the main event being the peak of this year’s Perseids Meteor Shower.  The park hosts were very accommodating and helpful, guiding everyone to a special viewing area up above the overflow parking.  The featured astronomy guests were unable to make it but nonetheless we still had a good time, observing several awing glowing streaks and trailing tails.

Peace,
