Meteor season begins…

Summer Meteor Season you sky watchers.

Someone say you should shower more often, maybe they meant Meteor shower. The Earth is intersecting rocky and ice debris fields at times of the year including the Delta Aquariids in late July. In early August there will be Perseids to be seen…

Moon free skies…

There is an advantage to darker skies when viewing meteors as well as being in an area free of ground light pollution. Merritt has a number of excellent places to view night skies.

Good luck
