    @Sam BigDeer , :lol:, calling me, "Ducky!" DD's (and my dogs, Eva and Pyg or Pyggums) call me Ducky, or "Duckums."
    I have great viewing in the back yard, but I don't take enough advantage of it. I DID go out for the 4 "blood moons" several years ago.
    The 2nd one was on October 8, 2014, specTACULAR viewing, peeking at about 6-7AM. There were folks who saw this and hadn't one clue what they were looking at. STILL trying to catch the Perseid meteor shower. I guess it's bc you have to be up with the owls to really see anything. :th

    It's rare that we have clear skies for Perseid's. That time of year is almost always hazy.
