Perseid Meteor Shower




The Perseid Meteor Shower which is visible in late July/early August is at its peak last night and tonight. It’s been dubbed “the fireball champion of annual meteor showers”. The LA Times recently posted a great article with more information about the meteor shower. You can check it out here.  You can also visit space.com to see lots of photos from 2012’s shower.

Our family spent about an hour outside Saturday night and we were able to see 13 meteors. My kids are chompin’ at the bit to get back out there tonight.

So, grab some blankets and head on out to the backyard a couple of hours after the sun sets. Make those memories! 😀

Candy is a southern girl who enjoys the simple things in life. Dirt road drivin’, Sunday afternoon nappin’, back yard swingin’, and sunset watchin’ are a few of the things that make her smile.

Homeschooling for over 18 years now, she is also a bit of a word-nerd (ok, maybe more than a “bit” – she actually considers making lists of homophones to be entertaining), a lover of books and chocolate, a survivor of cancer, an author, and a hula hoop maker.
