THE PERSEIDS ARE COMING!

August 12, 2007 — the Perseids cometh


Tomorrow night, when the moon is new and the sky has been dark for a couple of hours look to the East at the Perseus constellation and the shiny red ball of Mars and you will see the beginning of the annual shower of meteors from the tail of the Swift-Tuttle comet for the rest of the night coming at you live and in increasing density until it reaches one meteor per minute as the curtain raises once again for dawn.
