Anticipating the Perseids PostFri Aug 10, 2001 6:59 am  Reply with quote  



Summer nights and shooting stars. They're an unbeatable combination. That's why northern sky watchers look forward so to the annual Perseid meteor shower in August. During the shower's peak, which happens this year on August 12th, dozens and sometimes hundreds of meteors shoot across the sky every hour. Dark-sky observers who stay out all night sometimes count more than a thousand!

The much-anticipated Perseids, as reliable as clockwork, rarely fail to please. Around this time last year, however, enthusiasts were bracing for something unusual: Perseid disappointment. On the night of the shower's 2000 maximum, the Moon was to be nearly Full. It would outshine all but the brightest shooting stars.

More about the event:

I'd sure like to take a drive out into the country and escape the light pollution so I can see the show. Too bad I blew the head gasket in my engine. Sucks!

light pollution stinx....what's bad is that gasket of yours only costs about $12.00, and will run you about 3 to 6 hundred to fix unless you have a friend that is a mechanic or can do it yourself...stargazing in the country where I'm at is awesome...

smoke from chem11's tailpipe looks similar to this...

Yeah, I'm beginning to develop a mild distate for the internal combustion engine. Last time it was a fouled carb that led to a rather impressive engine fire. I almost got cremated.

It was a clear night last night and I watched a spectacular Perseids show right overhead. Did anyone else see it?

What time did you watch Lulu? We had a beautiful clear sky last night, many more stars visible than we've had for awhile, and I saw nada. Bummer, maybe tonight.
