August is the best month for watching meteors. Get outside, preferably all night in your sleeping bag, and just look up. You’ll see meteors from many showers, but especially the Perseids, which peak on the nights of August 11 and especially the 12th.
I remember camping out in the front yard when I was maybe 8 or 9 and watching the stars slowly wheel to the west, with many shots of excitement when a shooting star zipped across the sky. The experience fueled my life-long love of astronomy.
What’s your first meteor experience?
