11:31 PM: starfall
tonight was the peak activity for the perseids. i was planning on going to omsi's starwatching party at rooster rock this year, but it's cloudy tonight! just as well, i suppose: i have unexpectedly found myself "assisting" with a gocco class at the oregon college of art & craft for the next 3 days and there's still so much to do tonight to get ready for it.
fortunately, sven & i went to the top of powell butte last night around 2 a.m. to watch the meteors. it was a heck of a climb to do in the dark, but we were rewarded with some really beautiful shooting stars.
