Perseid meteor shower   Leave a comment

The Perseid Meteor Shower is coming up soon. It is always in mid- August, and this year the peak will be on Sunday the 12th of August, 2012 at 5:00a.m. PDT.  The Perseids are rightly considered one of the best meteor showers of the year, with observers regularly reporting 60+ meteors per hour at the peak.

Even the days leading up to the shower will have increased meteor activity.  Astrono-ME! Productions will be hosting a viewing on Sunday night, complete with an astronomy talk, directions on how best to view the shower, and hot cocoa for those who pre-register (or while supplies last).  Suggested donations are $10 – 20 per person or group, but of course, no one is turned away!  We will be  blogging more about the Perseids in the days to come, so stop by soon!
