Are you hosting an International Starry Night event? Join in the fun and promote your event here. You can begin to register your ISN events now. Events may be large or small; they may be open to many, such as public stargazing sessions in city parks, or a small gathering of friends turning out the lights and watching the show from a favorite spot.

International Starry Night began in 2013, and we had participation in 32 events in five countries and two continents, attended by more than a thousand people. Not a bad start, but we expect 2014's celebrations to be even bigger!

Excellent Prospects for August’s Perseid Meteors

by Bob Eklund, syndacated writer of "Looking UP"

 

The Perseid meteor shower, an annual celestial event beloved by millions of skywatchers around the world, returns to the night sky this week, peaking late-night on Aug. 11-12 and continuing for several days through mid-August.  And because the Moon will be in its crescent phase and setting in early evening, no moonlight will hinder the viewing in the later evening hours.
