Tag Archives: Perseids

I was all set to watch the Perseids (meteor shower) tonight, but the moon and the weather had other plans.  The almost-full moon combined with light pollution made all but three stars invisible tonight, and then clouds decided to hide even those three from view.  No meteor-gazing tonight!

Reluctantly I climbed out of my hot tub, lexan wine glass in hand, and gave up.  Right place, wrong time.  Oh, well….

This image is not from tonight.  But it does show what a lovely moonless and light pollution-free sky looks like, so I thought I’d include it.  You can see Ursa Major (the Big Dipper) in the upper middle, and Polaris (the North Star) in the far upper right.

I hope the Perseids are better seen and enjoyed from wherever you may be.  To all a good night!
