I began thinking about such as I bird-counted on my walk to yoga.
Cormorants. Great Blue Herons. Ospreys. Kingfishers: Fisherbirds.
Lots of mouths to feed, these egg-layers. Real.
Not like the egg-followers or “bot” (automated not human) army
used to falsely inflate Trump’s twitter numbers.
This is so not like my fisherbirds.
They are honorably fishy.
I’m disgusted with Trump’s fire-laced, incendiary,
irresponsible coded language for using nuclear weapons.
Who does this? It’s crazy.
I’m reminded that the Perseid meteor shower is this weekend
& although the current White House occupant is NOT fast & bright,
& he does blaze forth & attract attention, mayhap he will,
like the Perseids, fade away
(as in be removed from office) like these August Fireballs.
Note from Patty: I relish the fury of the meteor showers and seek to learn about them so as to watch them perform. I do not feel similarly about our President.
You did have options to watch the 2017 Perseids online. On Saturday, the online Slooh community observatory hosted a free webcast of the Perseids here, beginning at 8 p.m. EDT (0000 GMT). The webcast will also appear on Space.com, courtesy of Slooh.
The Virtual Telescope Project based in Italy hosted a live webcast Saturday at 4:50 p.m. EDT (2050 GMT). You can watch that Perseids webcast live here at start time.
