The Perseid meteors appear to stream away from their radiant near the border of Perseus and Cassiopeia. Before 11 p.m., you can also look for the Double Cluster and the Andromeda Galaxy.

The upcoming total solar eclipse is understandably getting a lot of attention, but don’t overlook the trusty Perseids. They’ll be getting things warmed up Saturday night.  The annual shower is expected to peak Saturday night–Sunday morning, August 12–13, 2017.

About aritter2014

I am a Librarian. To be honest, I wouldn't want to do anything else. I have a strong background in architecture, computer technology, English literature, Internet applications, web site design, film studies and modern art. I would like to use this page to express my personal musings and experiences on news, pop culture, nature, art, science, technology and what ever becomes a curiosity.
