Get ready to stay up late this month – especially August 12th – because you are going to see some spectacular lights in the sky.
2009 is the international year of astronomy, and August is an especially important month.
Welcome to Parseid Meteor Shower Month!
This month you will be able to stay up until around midnight and see some wonderful meteor showers, and you don’t even need a telescope!
August 12th has been deemed to be the extra special night of the month with a forecast of a huge meteor shower that night. So rug up and have a party because it’s going to be a beautiful night.
