But Clouds Got in My Way

But Clouds Got in My Way

I carefully set up the tripod to provide a nice leafy frame for any Perseid meteors my camera might catch last night, but clouds got in my way. Despite my success the night before, I didn't capture a single meteor at the Perseid peak last night --on account of clouds, mist, or the camera not being aimed in the right direction at the right instant. (This was taken about 3:00am facing west.) Earlier, we saw quite a few with the naked eye. One of mine had a long tail that streaked across about a third of the sky.
