Looked at the stars and then shooting stars appeared. Very pretty shooting stars and very bright they go so quickly maybe half a second at the most and they're gone. I wonder if there will be more tonight? How many days is this? :peace: [/quote] Wow, thanks for your report. The best one I've seen was about a week ago. Even though they peak at August 12, many sporadic Perseids can be seen for 10 days or more on either side of the peak date. We'll probably have a few stragglers reported next weekend, too. Peace. [/quote] Thank you. I got lucky. I will look again during the night. The sky should be clear. Maybe I will have to wait longer to see them. Will try and see if I am lucky again. I wonder if the astronauts in the International Space Station can see them? :peace: [/quote]
Perseid Meteor showers peaking now through tomorrow night. Thanks to our beloved internet we can observe them from our computers even if it's raining outside. Of course if you're blessed with clear, dark skies all you need is a lounge chair or blanket, some bug repellent and a pair of eyeballs. That's right, NO FANCY OPTICS REQUIRED.
