Hey Space Placers!
Be sure to read my blog on the Perseids. But if you are looking to be clouded out like I am, please read on as to how you can still observe the Perseid Meteor Shower.
As I write this I am listening to meteor radar - yes radar that scans for incoming meteors as well as satellites and space debris. It is a fascinating way - just heard one!! - to monitor a meteor shower like the Perseids. Essentially the louder a ping is, the brighter the meteor would be in the sky.
You can listen during the day and night, so tune your browser to http://spaceweatherradio.com to listen in just like you would go out to watch.
Good hunting, clear skies or not!
