On the nights of August 11th and 12th I laid in the grass of my backyard, with a set of binoculars, glasses and a compass watching Perseids! The Perseid meteor shower was known as the "Tears of St. Lawrence." The Perseid meteor shower is an annual meteor shower - Every year, the earth passes through the debris cloud left by the comet when the earth's atmosphere is bombarded by what is popularly known as "falling stars" Thus, is what we watch for! It is not uncommon to see at least 60 meteors per hour streaking through the moonlit sky! Although on August 12th, the sky was rather cloudy, I didn't get to see much. I did however, school joe in Mac and Cheese lessons with bacon and ketchup! He say's I was the most prepared to see the stars! That's because i'm the daughter of the kooked out science teacher! If my dad taught me anything, it's how to find the stars. I love everything about space. I'm a sponge for knowledge dealing with the Stars. I enjoy star gazing so much - to the point I had at least 6 people informed about the shower and to watch. Jay Cinematic claims "I'm so full of life, it's awesome!" Weee! I previously blogged about my dads teachings - I really appreciate learning about this kind of stuff and am thankful and I can still teach myself just from knowing certain things from my dad. On the night of the 12th I saw at least 2 shooting stars, packed it in ealry though. Keep your eyes to sky tonight, for you too shall see nature at it's best! And you're never too old to make a wish :o).
