Perseid Meteor Shower - Moonless Thursday Night

submitted on August 11, 2010 by pablos17 in "Member's Lounge"
It's gonna be a great night for viewing on Thursday with a sky only polluted by man-made interferences.

The last time the annual Perseid meteor shower happened during a run of good moonless nights was in 2007. It turns out that every three years, the same phase of the Moon returns to roughly the same date each month (2.2 days earlier, on average). So in 2010 we're on for moonless Perseids again!
