It might be a good year to see the Perseid meteor shower


Catching a productive meteor shower can be a stunning experience.  On the evenings and mornings of August 11th, 12th and 13th there could be a very good show.  A last quarter moon will leave the night sky growing darker each night. Depending on the cloudiness of the evening, conditions are expected to be excellent.  Let students read charts, analyze data, work with percent of moon visibility at each phase, and understand apparent magnitude in the night sky with this activity. They can stay up for the show or wake up early?  Motivate them!
