Practicing for the Perseid

From the New York Times:

“Prepare for the Perseids.
This week, the annual meteor shower will illuminate the night sky with cosmic fireworks, creating a particularly dazzling display for skygazers across the Northern Hemisphere.

NASA estimates that between 160 and 200 meteors will ignite in Earth’s atmosphere every hour during the display’s peak on Thursday night and Friday morning. Normally the shower has between 80 and 100 space specks.”

I am hoping to “catch” a meteor this evening!

About the author jmankowsky

I live in Central Massachusetts in the United Stares, where I have recently retired from public school teaching after thirty-four years. I am a nature photographer, particularly focusing on the the wide variety of birds to be found in this area. I am a keen supporter of the Massachusetts Audubon and the exceptional work that they do in education and protecting nature. It pleases me that many of the photographs I have posted here have also been displayed on the Wachusett Meadow Audubon in Princeton, MA website. I would love to connect with other primary school teachers in the hope that these photos might be useful in inspiring children to a greater connection with nature.
