8/11/13 4:07am – New York City lights a major spoiler for my meteor hunt. I saw about 5 Perseid meteors on Sunday morning, but none captured on camera. But easily distinguishable are: Jupiter – low on the horizon and center, the belt of Orion on the right, and the Pleiades cluster toward the top right. As I was getting discouraged trying to catch a meteor, I felt it to be perfect timing to try out some light painting on the beach. Low tide a bonus. This I will probably never get tired of. Who needs meteors anyway? Ha-ha. SS
