For my star research, I sat outside on my back deck for a hour and saw three shooting stars and one bat.  That’s all I saw of the Perseid Meteor Shower. Though it wasn’t the most exciting meteor shower I’ve seen, it was relaxing. Here’s a time lapse photos of another shower, the Leonids, which happens in the middle of November. I also watch that one every year.

I love stargazing, but I’ve been distracted lately with the last two chapters of my next novel, trying to get them just right.  It seems a lot of people on Nights of Passion have been doing research.

In addition to studying French, I’ve been digging deep into the catacombs of Paris, metaphorically speaking of course. Fascinating!  Though I have to say the information is enormous, and as it always happens you end up knowing far more than you might use in a novel. There are six million people buried in the catacombs below Paris, and as you can see by the photo below, they started to arrange bones artistically. The catacombs began as mines under the city, but when cemeteries were filled to overflowing, it was decided to use the empty spaces created by the mining for mass graves. Today you can go on a tour of the catacombs which is estimated to take 45 minutes. “The tour is unsuitable for people with heart or respiratory problems, those of a nervous disposition and young children.” That’s a quote from their website. http://www.catacombes.paris.fr/en/homepage-catacombs-official-website There are no accommodations for the mobility challenged. See the website for details.
