Clear sky - fingers crossed

Hoping for clear skies tonight to watch the Perseid Meteor Shower - looking good at the moment with plenty of bright blue sky visible.

The Yorkshire Wolds are a good place for star-gazing with wide open views from the wold tops and minimal light pollution. I've often spent time staring up into the infinity of space. Marveling at the incomprehensible scale of it all and trying to fathom just how bright something must be to be visible from such distances.

Update - Unfortunately, by 2230hrs the clouds had gathered and I saw nothing!
