PERSEID METEORS
« on: August 12, 2011, 09:06:24 PM »
It's that time of year again when the Perseids are reigning down on our skies with peak activity threatened for 6:00 am (GMT) Saturday. About 1 every minute. As with anything celestial, the sky is full of cloud  >:( Apparently they should last until the 22nd August but even if the clouds disappear tonight, the moon is almost full, so light pollution will be a problem as well. You just can't win can you.
I start work at 8am so if I'm up early enough I might get to see a few. Problem then is, it gets light about 5am.  :uglystupid2:


BOOZE!!! Helping ugly people have sex.

Cloudy again last night but threw the dog out at 11:30pm and saw one right above me, even through the cloud cover it was that bright. Must have been a sizeable chunk. :o Clear in the north west at the moment so there might be a few visible later.
BOOZE!!! Helping ugly people have sex.
