On Wednesday 13th August approximately 35 members and friends of WAS enjoyed the annual Perseid BBQ.
Although it took a while for the BBQ’s to get going a great range of food was cooked from sausages and steaks to kebabs and burgers.
The weather held out and although a little cloudy at times, it did not rain and cleared enough in the evening for us to be able to see and enjoy a few Perseids. These started at around 10.40pm and we probably saw one every 4 – 5 minutes or so. The Moon was up but fortunately stayed behind a bank of cloud for a fair bit of the evening thereby lessening the brightness of it.
A lovely evening was had by all.
