    Hi lady, I was wondering when you'd turn up.

    You should have another good shower this time round (sorry to bring that up again) as the expected peak is in the next few hours. But you probably have missed the amazing alignment of the planets and the moon....now gone below the horizon where you are, I think. Tomorrow night you can try for it, however, the Moon will have drifted away from the planets a little bit.

    I created another thread for this year's Perseids due to the conjunction event here: http://www.usj.com.my/bulletin/uploa...5&page=1&pp=15

    hhaha.... i saw that thread today but it was sooo long and i was tooooo lazy to read everything. I dont usually read many threads in the forum.

    I just went outside to hv a peep, and barely 2mins of looking at the starry sky, i saw one short trail . YAY! Anyway.. you will really love it here. It is sooooo starry and there is a HUGE bright 'star'??/planet?? whatever..
    I am so clueless about these things. I just like to look. Am talking my son into setting up the cam and so on. He is too busy surfing the net at recipes to bake more cakes instead. siighh...

    Will keep u informed .. and hopefully with pics It's now almost 11pm my time. Will be awake for another 2 hours at least.

    OK, ok, I'm shifting to CA....next blue moon!

    That bright thing is probably Jupiter, currently the second brightest planet in the night sky after Venus (If you have seen Venus recently, you won't think Jupiter is bright anymore.)

    Try and get some pics please....

    I want to scream already. I was taking a 30sec shot and barely an inch away was a HUGE flare that left a long bright trail in the sky for a few secs but i wasnt able to stop the shot and move the cam in time. Siighhhh
