People who like to learn about and observe the constellations-
and watch for falling stars during meteor showers
often gather to share the experience and call it a "Star Party"
The Perseids Meteor shower this weekend is best viewed during the new moon.
We have little light pollution here so we are going to try to have our first little
Star Party and try and view the Perseids this Saturday and Sunday.
no matter where you live, there are Star Parties ahpppening near you.

Make a wish!
