We'll be star gazing Saturday night, positioning the plastic loungers and fluffy cushions for a nice view of the Perseid meteor shower that will peak late Saturday night into Sunday morning.
I'll make some treats.
We'll have some tasty drinks.
We may have a little music in the background.
No doubt cats will be joining us!
The Perseid Meteor Shower 2012 hits its stride this weekend, late Saturday night and early Sunday morning. And what stride it will be: according to NASA, expect up to 100 meteors per hour. As an extra bonus, a waning crescent moon means that moonlight won’t completely overwhelm the meteors as they shoot across the sky. link to meteor info
For others that are not lounging under the stars, our planetarium is having Cheap Date Night with a simulation of the shower and a showing of When Worlds Collide, classic sci-fi. That leaves plenty of time before the peak.
