When most of the rest of our corner of the world was fast asleep (4AM! this morning), Strike & I were bundled up in our back yard & reclined under the vast canopy of stars to watch the Leonids Meteor Shower. With eyes open wide, & continually sweeping the sky so as not to miss any of the show within our view, we did manage to see a few shooting stars & to identfiy some constellations. It was cold so we didn't stay out long but we saw more shooting stars during that short time than we're likely to see in a whole year otherwise. Just a special time w/ my baby girl. After we came in, she stayed up a bit & watched out the window w/ Mak - & that's when I snapped this pic.

Did anyone else enjoy the show?

He determines the number of the stars and calls them each by name.
Psalm 147:4

Levi wanted to, but did not wake up when his alarm went off.

I'm so glad you enjoyed the show with Strike. Mother/daughter time is special.
My mom always used to remind me about these. So I'd call her the next day to talk about what we saw. It was a special connection.
Her sleep is erratic now, so she doesn't try to wake up for them.
I think I'll start watching for them again, though. Thank you for the reminder!
