Friday meteors (Blue Mountains)

I joined a gaggle of people near the Observing Pad. They were watching for meteors again, one day after the peak. I recorded the audio. It's pretty funny.

I could hear Millie, Sue, Fred, Phil, Kiron. And wind noise (without the sock).

Fred was shooting wide angles of the Milky Way hoping to catch something in his net. He did. And he posted it on his Facebook Misc. imagery page.

I spotted a meteor in Ursa Minor heading toward Polaris. It must have been an Aquarid.


I uploaded the sound file to my companion site for one's listening pleasure. Scroll down to the "meteor watching sounds" section.
