BIG moon and the Perseid meteor shower

Post by tocyvi on Sun Aug 10, 2014 5:06 pm

Watch out tonight for the moon which will be up to 14% bigger and 30% brighter than other full moons during the year. At the same time, it's the time of the year for the Perseid meteor shower, which should give a display up until Tuesday night. The problem at the moment, of course, is the cloud cover!

Hi Inkflo. Funnily enough, I thought of you when I posted this. If I remember correctly, last year it turned out to be my fault that you didn't spot anything Wink 

I've covered myself this year by pointing out the cloud problem. I think the chances of seeing anything are slim to none!

Saw a HUGE moon this morning as the SWMBO entered the shower.

Probably too late now, but don't hold back in future.

Well, I always blame you, but I'll forgive you this year, as the moon was an amazing sight.

Hi Inkflo. Yes, the moon was impressive. The trouble was that its brightness spoilt the chance of seeing any meteors.

Now how did I know you would find another reason for me not seeing them!  Rolling Eyes
