Like Silver Ribbons Across The Earth
Julie, Henry and myself all packed in the car and drove out of Toronto to the David Dunlap Observatory on Richmond Hill this evening to watch the Perseid meteor shower. They were amazing, the whole night was amazing. Hundreds of people laying on their backs in total darkness on a grassy hill in front of a sprawling observatory. Every time a bright silver ribbon flashed across the sky the crowd would ooh and aah and then laugh. I didn't have the best camera and couldn't figure out how to take night time photos with it so I took these shots in and around one of the observatories. Henry slept through the whole thing but I was glad he was there in any case.
