Perseid Meteor Shower this weekend

Don't forget that this weekend is the Perseid meteor shower, when we expect to see far more 'shooting stars' than on a normal night. This year the moon will be bright, making the sky bright enough to block out some of the meteors, but it's still worth getting out and looking up.

Stuart has lots of information on Cumbrian Sky. Also there is information at the Planetary Society website here and here.

    A clear sky would be nice for a change.

    Has anyone managed to do any astronomy (apart from armchair or e-astronomy) recently??
