The Lyrid meteor showers were last week so I headed out to the darkest sky I could find - the Gulf of Mexico - and tried to catch a falling star.
Alas, I was unsuccessful. But anytime you go to the beach it is fun - even when it is 5 in the morning.
I wasn't too disappointed because I knew that soon I would have another opportunity. The Eta Aquarids meteor shower is in a couple weeks and I'd be in good old Northlandia for them.
