PERSEID METEOR SHOWER

I don't think I'll be able to witness the perseid meteor shower cause we have a stormy kind of weather these past few days also this weekend. According to the news the Perseid meteor shower occurs every year between July 17 and August 24. The shower tends to peak around August 9-13. And it one of the brighter meteor showers of the year. The best time to view the Perseids, and most other meteor showers, is when the sky is the darkest. Most astronomers suggest that depending on the Moon’s phase, the best time to view meteor showers is right before dawn. Have you seen the merteor shower?

@therealmaryyy that means it's hard to see stars for them.

No, we really can't see the sky from where we are, we'd have to get someone to drive us somewhere else. Would be cool to be able to go to Lassen park, and watch through one of their good telescopes. But I don't think that's ever gonna happen.
