Perseids meteor shower starts 8/11 Cool!!

Are you ready for a meteor-watching party?? If not, why not??
The 2014 Perseid meteor shower will peak between August 10 and August 13. A waning Gibbous Moon (the Moon’s phase after a full moon) may make it harder for observers to see the shower. Despite this, astronomers suggest that observers try their luck to catch some Perseids before dawn on August 11, 12 and 13. (See: http://www.timeanddate.com/astronomy/meteor-shower/perseid.html )

So bummed that it’s been cloudy and rainy in Indiana the past two nights! Couldn’t even see last night’s “supermoon.” 🙁 Hoping it’ll clear up in time for me to at least catch the tag end of the Perseids!
