Perseids shower – August 2010

It’s already August – I remember last year reading the news and wondering if I should try to stay up late and see if I could catch a meteor or two – I ended up choosing sleep. ¬† I’m going to give a shot this year instead, particularly since there should still be some meteors early Saturday morning (the peak was apparently last night). ¬†Judging from this handy site, the best time for me this Saturday (in the Tokyo suburbs) will be just before 5AM.

Let’s see if I can actually manage to wake up at 5AM and spot some!

    Hi, kiddo, did you see any meteorites? We could have seen some here but I was too tired to get up early to watch!

    Unfortunately not… I did wake up around 3AM, but the sky was completely overcast, not a star in sight, let alone a meteorite! (hey, that rhymed!)

    Maybe next year…
