So the Lyrids meteor shower is happening at the moment, and despite the 23rd being the best night to check it out, I decided to set my alarm for 2am to catch a few falling stars.
I dragged out two deck chairs – one for me, one for my dog. It was a beautiful clear night, a little chill, and I was hopeful of seeing a few streaking lights between the gum trees. My dog and I snuggled under a shared blanket…and promptly fell asleep.
I’m sure the falling stars were beautiful.
