Perseid Meteor Shower 2018

My husband, Carl, and I went out to the Witte Observatory on the evening and morning of August 11 / 12 for the Perseid Meteor Shower.  As Carl puts it ~ it definitely was not a "shower" =)

Stone-Kelley Dome and Milky Way


Camera point of view, Andromeda Galaxy is barely visible

About Me

My photo

I've lived in southeastern Iowa all of my life, now with my wonderful family ~ husband and 3 children. 

I've been teaching science now at the local community college for over 10 year now.  I teach both in the class room and online settings.  I have a passion for ALL PHYSICAL SCIENCE! 

Sometimes I both drift off to sleep and wake up thinking of science.  Science ROCKS ~ but even more so the Creator whose imagination thought up this wonderful universe we call home ROCKS EVEN MORE!  lol
