Perseids

night time photo without a flash
Selfie of us stargazing on a blanket in the backyard. I didn’t use a flash and it was pretty dark.

We all (Mom, Alpha, Beta, and I) camped out in the back yard to look for shooting stars — tonight is the peak of the annual Perseids meteor shower.  We saw a couple of bright streaks, a bunch of dim streaks, and a handful of satellites.

The grrlz got curious about the stars as we lay on the blanket, and we talked about the Big Bang, extra dimensions, time travel, landing on the sun, and extraterrestrials.
