Blog Your Blessing : Perseid Meteor Shower

Photograph Credit: Joe Westerberg

During the dark hours from 2 am to dawn on Tuesday, August 12th, the Perseid Meteor Shower will provide a celestial light show in the Eastern sky.

Beginning the evening of Monday, August 11, before the moon rises, Perseus will rise in the northeast and you may see long, colorful Earthgrazers skip across the sky, harbingers of another celestial event. Next, watch the Southern sky, where Jupiter and the Moon converge in the constellation Sagittarius.

The moon will interfere with Perseid viewing until 2 am on Tuesday morning, when the Moon sets, leaving a dark sky to be painted with Perseids. Soon, the meteor shower will explode into sight, with hundreds of meteors per hour seen in areas away from city lights.

Very, very cool post. I like it because it says something about you, and how you look at the world. Thanks.

I had forgotten about the Perseid Meteor Shower! (...a sad statement about my ageing memory!) so your blessing is a DOUBLE blessing for me... one of an amazing cosmic light show... and the other to remember to look for it! Thanks!

@whatever-Thanks! That is high praise from you.

@matthew-Thanks for stopping by. If I did not blog, I would not remember. I saw my post from LAST year and it jogged my memory.

@karuvai-Thanks for your comment. I hope you see the meteors.

@sue-I stand in awe of you, techno goddess supreme! I moved one blog and I am still recovering. If I start making some money, maybe I can hire you. LOL

I reckon I missed it. Hope it was beautiful sight for you tho! I even missed the full moon tonight because it has been too hot for 4 days of temps over 100.
