Perseid Meteor Shower Coming..

This picture is from National Geographic and shows the Perseid Meteor Shower and what a treat you are in for..It will peak on August 11/12.
This is a fun thing to watch with children..Get a blanket and set it up in the yard or deck/porch..and watch the show.
The only thing that would ruin this display, is the weather..lets hope for clear skies..
To me this meteor shower and the one in November are the best..If you have never seen one before, you are in for a wonderful time.
Nothing beats fireworks from heaven..


Till next time, keep looking up...

My husband and I fell in love under a meteor shower in an Iowa cornfield many moons ago :).

I love a good meteor shower. We take our sleeping bags out to the trampoline and just lay back and enjoy! Hopefully it will be a good one this year!

I remember watching a shower back home, when I was 13 or 14. I saw what looked like a burning pearl in the sky, right before the sun went down. It was the prettiest thing I'd ever seen. And then my friend and I layed out on the front lawn for hours, making tally marks for every streak accross the sky. I love meteor showers *sigh*.

there's something about a meteor shower that reminds me just how small we really are - so incredible to watch.

RainbowMom said...

Awesome! Thanks for posting this.. I really look forward to taking a good look. Definately a good day for a camp out in the back yard. :) I've marked it on the calendar. Peace!

Yeah, I'm looking forward to sitting in a lawn chair with a blanket over me in 100 degree weather, just to keep from turning into a giant mosquito bite...but it is worth every second, better than fireworks...and just think of all the wishes. Hope the skies are clear for all of us.

Hey Harriet said...

This sounds great! I've never seen a meteor shower before. Fingers crossed for a nice clear night!

Kimiko said...

I wish I could see the meteor shower! It's just too bright here in Southern California!

We are in the mountains of Northern California and I look forward to August every year, such a good reason to stay up late on a summer evening.
