Meteor Watch!

Eric and Sylvia drive up into the mountains to get the centuries best viewing of the Leonid meteor shower.

Eric gets ready for a long night of picture taking. His friend, Joe Beda, lent him a non-digital camera which is capable of much longer, controlled exposure, than our little digital camera.Sylvia shivers from the cold. Even though we had lots of warm clothes, we were still freezing.

Every once in a while a car would drive up the road we were situated on. Mostly these were other meteor watchers, looking for a good place from which to watch. However, the headlights would overwhelm the exposure.Off in the distance, Seattle casts light up to the clouds.

This one was caught behind some power lines. The location from which we were watching was a service road for power lines.
