Randomly decided to go see the Leonid meteor shower with two friends last night. We had originally wanted to go on Saturday but it was raining. I met up with them at 11: 30 pm....we stopped by a store and bought drinks and snacks and then headed up to Angeles Crest. We drove up over 3,000 ft and stopped on the side of the road where we had a great view of the city. We faced the opposite direction so that the lights wouldn't bother us. I had brought along mats that we laid down on. It was really cold. My hands freeze so easily so I had to bring two sets of gloves...pathetic. It's difficult to eat with gloves on.
We didn't have high expectations for this shower but we were pleasantly surprised~ We saw over twenty shooting stars. Five of those were pretty big. There was one that made our night....it was a fireball....it's tail left a mark in the sky for a couple of seconds. After we saw that one, nothing really impressed us.
It was pitch black. My phone camera didn't know how to focus.
The clearest photograph: the aftermath. Armenians love to eat seeds.
We got home at around 3:30 am. I went straight to bed because I had studio today. Now I'm sitting at home...listening to music and drawing <3
