Meteor Showers and Racoons

I watched the Geminids meteor shower last night with my family. It was one of the biggest meteor showers we had. The super moon was so full and bright that it was hard to see all of them, but I wasn’t complaining. It was a magical experience watch watching the meteors as they hit the earths outer surface burning beautiful colors away. I just happened to be in Cabo right by the ocean with the moon light beaming off of the night waters. I wanted to know what constellations I was looking at so I downloaded an app called Skyview and saw all kinds of cool things! The pic below is the actual sky I was looking at, and the gemini sign appeared! The app draws out the constellation for you in live time! It was an absolutely beautiful experience and I’m so happy that I stayed up late to watch it.fullsizerender-8

On another note as we were watching the shower, and feeling all Zen and everything, I hear something and the bushes next to the house. It sounded like someone walking up to the house, and with the Mafia wars here so bad right now of course the only logical thought in my mind was that the cartel where coming through the house. My stepmom and I swiftly got up, grabbed my brother (who automatically brought out weapons, I was given a police baton) got my dad up out of bed, just to find out that it was a raccoon the size of our Labrador Bob! LOL, we all had a good laugh and appreciated that we moved so fast as a unit thinking there was an intruder! Gotta love family time.
