Next month, on Sat 11 Aug, the peak of the Perseid meteor shower coincides with a weekend and a new moon (no moon = dark night skies). If you’ve seen a meteor shower before, you know how spectacular it is — meteorites every several seconds. If you haven’t, you’re in for a treat if you like stars or astronomy or nature’s beauty.
Anyone have plans to see it? I’m taking a road trip, 400 miles out to northwest Nevada’s Black Rock Desert. Near the Burning Man Playa. It’ll be very dark there and it should be a spectacular show!
