(Here is the news)
The weather’s fine but there may be a meteor shower.. – From the song ‘Here is the news’ by Electric Light Orchestra (1982)
The Perseid Meteor Shower of 2013 (it comes around every year) is said to be more visible than usual with the moon out of the way. So late last night I did go outside and tried to see a ‘shooting star’ (a misnomer for a meteoroid), but with the trees and the clouds in the way I had no luck. I think it will help to have a powerful telescope as well !
