    And apparently Mars is also extremely close to the earth, so it should be spectacular. let's hope it's a clear night

    Space Weather News for August 10, 2004
    http://spaceweather.com

    PERSEID METEORS: The Perseid meteor shower peaks this week. Look for rare
    but lovely Perseid Earthgrazers when the sun goes down on Wednesday,
    August 11th. Then, before dawn on Thursday, August 12th, go outside for
    the main event: as many as 60 meteors per hour. Getting away from city
    lights is a good idea: dark skies reveal more meteors.

    VENUS AND THE MOON: Early Thursday morning just before dawn when the
    Perseid meteor shower is supposed to be most intense, Venus and the
    crescent moon will appear side-by-side in the eastern sky. This lovely
    pair would be worth waking up for even if there were no meteor shower.
    Check SpaceWeather.com for a sky map.

    BIG SUNSPOT: Sunspot 649, which unleashed several powerful solar flares
    in July, is back and it's growing again. The large spot has a complex
    magnetic field that harbors energy for X-class solar flares. It's easy to
    see, but never look directly at the blinding sun. Check SpaceWeather.com
    for safe solar observing tips.


    ...you can get all this kinda info if you subscribe to the NASA spaceweather mailing lists. gives you all kinda info about auroras etc. kinda nerdy, but hey.
