Reminder: Perseids Meteor Shower

August 10th, 2009 · 1 Comment · Personal

It’s time for some more meteor shower action! This upcoming shower, the Perseids, is one of the more spectacular showers you can see throughout the year so you don’t want to miss it. Even better is that forecasts are predicting a higher than average number of meteors will be sighted during the peak period of Aug 11-12. The bad news though is that a nearly-full moon will spoil some of the fun. Another good reason to see the Perseids is that it’s really the only meteor shower worth watching when it’s still warm out. That’s right – the others like the Leonids and the Lyrids happen in the colder months. So go to bed way early and wake up around 12-1 in the morning or just stay up and set up the lawn chair and gaze up at the sky. If you’re a meteor-watching newbie, be sure to check out my tips for meteor watching to make sure you’re all prepared.

Go out and enjoy the show!!
