21.7.12

It's been a long long time! Sorry I've been away, work is life and life is work these days but I promise to make more time :D. Exciting Sky News! The Delta Aquarids followed by my favorite---Perseids!!
The Delta Aquarids ramble along steadily in late July and early August every year---  If you are looking for a peak date, try around July 28 and 29.
AND SOON AFTER....

The really big meteor event of any Northern Hemisphere summer is always the Perseid meteor shower. It’s reliable, and rich with meteors that fall in many colors. The Perseids will peak on the mornings – not the evenings – of August 12 and 13 in 2012. These typically fast and bright meteors radiate from a point in the constellation Perseus the Hero. You don’t need to know Perseus to watch the shower because the meteors appear in all parts of the sky. The Perseids are considered by many people to be the year’s best shower, and often peak at 50 or more meteors per hour in a dark sky.  Starting at mid to late evening on the nights of August 11/12 and 12/13, watch for the Perseid meteors to streak across this short summer night from late night until dawn, with only a little interference from the waning crescent moon.
