Star Party Report

Although the skies did not produce the “brilliant fireballs” promised for Digital Mom’s star party (we had a cloudy horizon), we did have a great time reclining on the driveway, using our NASA star finder, and messing around with the flashlight. Dirt Diver picked out Scorpius, the Big Dipper and the Southern Cross before I could.

I plan to keep up with what’s happening in the sky at stardate.org/nightsky/almanac. We’ll be looking for Jupiter to the lower left of the moon on Aug. 5 – 6 and for the Perseid meteor shower Aug. 12-13.

Did anyone else catch the Capricornid meteor show?
