Meteor Shower tonight
« on: August 12, 2010, 04:16:39 pm »
The next meteor shower is the Perseids on the night of August 12. The Moon is just a couple of days past new at the shower's peak, so there will be no moonlight to interfere with the faint meteors. The shower should reach its peak in the hours after midnight, with a maximum of a few dozen meteors visible per hour.

Apparently best time from the UK will be around 11pm - let's hope for a clear night!

Happy Stargazing!  :farmer:

We are never very lucky with seeing these sort of things.  We are high up, right out in the country, but its usually foggy, raining or something, so we cannot see.  Today, its thundering with heavy showers, so doubt we will be lucky today.

Its stopped raining, but we seem to be stuck, as usual, under a massive cloud, so not much hope here!!

Absolutely stunning here - saw loads. The Universe is really beautiful - everything was so clear. I feel very lucky and very sorry for those of you who didn't see it.

If you missed the shower you could look at Mars. This month is the brightest of our generation apparently.
