Bits and Pieces of Stuff

Because the peak of the Perseid meteor shower (goatloads of information on that page) in North America will be during daylight on Friday, the hours from moonset (somewhat before midnight) until dawn tonight and tomorrow will be the best time to see them here. I guess that means that the best views from Europe will be from late Friday into early Saturday morning, when the shower will be near its peak. I spent some time watching last night, but didn't see anything. I hope for better luck tonight.
