Perseid Meteor Showers 2012

Recommended Posts

Hi there, Im sure there are a few of you here just like myself who has an interest in Astronomy.

 

Incase you don't know, on the 11/12th of August there is going to be a massive Meteor Shower in the Northern Hemisphere at its peak.

It is spectacular and I have already seen atleast five with-in 30 minutes or so here in Ireland. It happens every year or so right the way through July to the end of August.

 

If you live in an area with very little light pollution then get out and lay down on the ground, look up at the night sky and enjoy!

Patience is vital, but It is worth it! You might even see the ISS fly by...
