Perseid Meteor Shower


The Perseid Meteor Shower
will peek tomorrow night August 12, 2007.
It will be the New Sunflower Moon so the skies will be dark.
Some shooting stars will be visible tonight if you can find a dark sky away from light pollution.

I want to go out into the country tonight.
We can put the top down and do some star gazing.

Hmm I live out in the boonies, sticks or woods. Not sure if I'll see anything. I really need a good night sleep, so planning to turn in at 11

I have to go look, hmm, wonder what time is best?

Everyone knows what I will be doing! I live in the boonies, too. It should be fun...as long as the clouds stay away.

Sandy said...

I forgot to look last night! But, I will be out tonight for sure.

Sheila said...

Hi Cathy,
Away from the city would be very nice! We have so much light pollution that I seldom see a shooting star!
Maybe you could grab a quick glance up right before shut eye!

Hi Mon@rch,
Late night is best! The darkest part of the sky too.
Hope you get to see a few shooters!

Hi Susan,
How nice to live far away from the maddening crowd and light pollution, air pollution and other city troubles.
Enjoy the show!

Hi Sheila,
we did not get away from the city last night. I did not see any :-}
Maybe we can get away tonight. I hope so!
Even if I do not get to see them at least I know they are there.

Hi Naturewoman,
Me too!
There is a total eclipse of the moon on the 28th. Those are always fun too.

I heard we could see it at 1am. HA! Not a chance!

Sherry, I hope you see it with your top down. Hold on to your hat!

Hugs,
Mary

Hi Mary,
I could be awake at 1am! I never know when I will get to sleep anymore, no hormones...long story.
Right now there are clouds! Hopefully somebody is seeing shooting stars tonight!
I am wishing for rain and cool down for you!
Hugs,
Sherry

Dear Nita,
Too cloudy at my house!
Just knowing it is happening makes me smile.
