streaking across the night sky
leave traces of joy
The beautiful video below features the Milky Way as seen from Flatside Pinnacle in Arkansas. The video was taken by Tim Stain of the Arkansas Nature Photography Group. NASA is predicting a particularly great Perseid Meteor shower this year. They’re estimating we might see as many as 200 shooting stars per hour due to the Swift-Tuttle Comet stream of debris being much closer to Earth’s atmosphere this year. The showers peak August 10-12, and will be visible for most of August. The best time to watch is after midnight looking toward the constellation Perseus in the northern sky. I intend to get out and enjoy the show! How about you?
