The night of August 11 an 12 we are in for some nighttime showers - meteor showers, that is. It's time for the Perseid Meteor Shower. I hope to get Earthgirl up early for a chance to see the bright streaks, which show up best early in the morning.
A few resources:
Classical Astronomy (I have their book, Classical Astronomy, and one of these years it will be our main science course. Right now, it's just a wonderful reference. I also receive their free e-newsletter - I recommend it!)
