We hurried outside with our blankets and pillows and lay down at the end of the driveway. It was just after 4:00 a.m., the sky was black but filled with the radiance of billions of stars.

There was a bit of unrest, the ground was hard and the early chill crept under our pile of blankets. Hush now, lie back and just watch the sky.

A quick inhale of breath, look look, there's one and there's one and the sky was filled with meteors, long tails clashing and stretching across the sky. The restless fell still and then silence.
