    Thumbs up Perseid Shower To Light Up The Sky

    Jack Horkheimer, a US talented astronomer has a small show that airs after our broadcast of Red Green and Jeeves & Wooster (kinda sounds lke I am in the UK),...but anyway, he has a neat program with downloadable vignettes of the nationally syndicated television show about...what else...naked eye stargazing.

    We have tonight and tomorrow (Northern Hemisphere) the Perseid's Meteor Showers that put on a really big display in the very later night or early morning hour.

    Here's a link to his site..perhaps you'd like to see these meteorites yourselves.

    I think they are visible from the Southern Hemisphere too.

    I saw some last night returning from my wedding anniversary and I know that tomorrow night (Monday, 13 Aug) will be the height of the show.

    Off course, you'll have to be lucky enough not to have any cloud cover as well....

    Me, I'm going to bed early wearing one of those airline eye masks, so I don't wake up blind and easy food for those triffids!!!

    This way you will have a placid evening.
