I love watching the sky. I watch the seasons change through it, the light cold blue of winter, to the deep blue of summer. The stars amaze me. Though I do not know where all the different constilations are, I can always find the BIG dipper, the North Star, and Orion. One of the first things I asked Kira when she got to Argentina was, "Have you seen the Southern Cross"? It is only seen in the Southern Hemisphere. So, when the Perseid meteor shower is underway I love going out late at night and watching the many "shooting stars".
If you have never done this...take the time in the next few days to enjoy heaven's fireworks.
You will have to go someplace dark, even the moon sometimes gives off to much light to get a good "show".
I wish I could say I took this picture but I got it off spaceweather.com
