Space Shed and weekend meteor shower

The weather may give opportunities to see the International Space Station now she is orbiting at a decent hour. Jupiter is well worth a look early morning and keep an eye out this weekend for this year’s Perseid meteor shower which promises two significant advantages. First, it occurs when the Moon is at a waning crescent phase, which means bright moonlight won’t diminish the number of visible meteors. And second, the shower peaks on a Saturday night, August 11/12, so most people can afford to sleep in or at least relax the following day. Enjoy
