    Tonight and tomorrow.

    I think tonight is the best for viewing.
     
  2. I'm thinking of driving to Hinckley to check them out. Parma isn't the best viewing.

  3. We had good viewing until the state put a new intersection in.... All the dang street lights light up the surrounding area for half mile.

  4. I'm sure I'll see a few shooting stars in the early morning.
    I plan on fishing the local up ground reservoir for Largemouth bass, starting at 3:30 or so.
    Our moon rise will be at 23:00 on the 12th an set about twelve hours later.
    The moon is still in the first phase after a full moon(waning gibbous) so may mess-up the view.

    But I'll be a lookin for the stars, an listening to the coyotes barkin an howlin at each other an hoping for the big bass or maybe two or three .

    Shoot .....almost 7 am here...see any?
     
  8. Didn't get to say hay to any Bigfoot, but seen some of the shooting stars, an caught a few bass.
    Seen maybe 100-150 falling stars.
    I was running Zara Spooks so most of the stars were reflections off the water --- Got to watch them spooks -- A big bass will every now an then just suck them down without any splash or noise.

    I can honestly say I saw a few out of the corner of my eye when I was driving home from work.

    I was lucky enough to be in the UP of Michigan this last weekend, even with some extra moonlight it was an amazing show.
