WhooHooo, the Perseids are coming!!!! One of the best meteor showers of the year will be happening over the next few days. Monday and Tuesday early morning hours (think 2-3 AM) is probably the best time for observing. But it’s worthwhile to get up–there is a good possibility one can see 80-100 meteors per hour.
Big long streaks of light, no moon, and warm weather, I’m looking forward to seeing them tomorrow night while camping out at mount laguna. We’ll take Elly, she likes to go camping. She’ll go into a tent and sleep happily all night long. The rest of us will be sleeping outside on cots with an alarm clock to wake us up at 2;30 am. We’ll take pictures, anything good will be posted.
