Perseids 2013 - by Radar

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 to listen in just like you would go out to watch.

Good hunting, clear skies or not!
