Where Are We Now - Ann Arbor


My undomiciled wanderings have taken me to Ann Arbor, Michigan. Home to the University of Michigan and just a stones throw from where I grew up. I expect to be hanging around this part of the Midwest until the snow flies.

Old friends and fall colors. Some nostalgia plus more new memories.

Traveling With Meteors to Minnesota



"This year, instead of seeing about 80 Perseids per hour, 

the rate could top 150 and even approach 200 meteors per hour," 
NASA meteor expert Bill Cooke.

Last Friday we went out into the local park and watched the sky streaked with Perseids. During the week as I traveled to Shakopee, Minnesota I saw more meteors nearly ever night. Even had one motel room with a near perfect view to the NorthEast.

Now I am in Minnesota for a short stopover (and a little poker) before I finish my wander to my fall destination in Michigan.
