Ready For Meteors!

Posted by Lydia on July 27th, 2008

Weather permitting, we should have a positive outcome for the Delta Aquarids ( going on now) and August’s Perseids, peaking before dusk on August 12, with the added benefit of the lack of moonlight this year. I’m watching for them, are you?

Watch for the Delta Aquarids in the southern part of the sky.

The moon should set around 3am early morning of August 12 for the Perseid Peak.
