Hi Folks!

Perseid Meteor Shower

This should be an especially good meteor shower show this year, up to 200 per hour in dark locations. Just find someplace dark, bring a blanket or lawn chair and enjoy! The showers start today/tonight and should peak Sunday night/Monday morning about 1 am but will last until dawn as well as continue for a few more nights.
It will be iffy for me because of smoke on and off - fingers crossed.

Yeah we got clouds tonight and forest fire smoke most of the time the sky would normally be clear. Not much hope of seeing any this year.

Good reminder! Thanks Don.
Would love to be some place up high in clear air with a dramatic foreground. GreatBasinPerseids2015-L.jpg

Guess I'll just have to settle for view from my deck through some smokey haze.
Unfotunately the smoke issue has poor viewing predicted for both Don and I. persid map.jpg

Well, Ken likes this 'cause he'll get a good view. Now if only we could combine viewing the Perseids with a night TW ride to a dark viewing area....
