Unfortunately, the weather is not expected to be conducive to watching
the Perseids - well, not in the Maryland area, anyway. Otherwise, I'd
probably have done some stargazing this evening.

The skies weren't good last night, either.

Well, there's always the Geminids, in mid-December. And no pesky
mosquitoes then, either. (The moon is likely to result in the Leonids,
in November, being sort of lack luster.)

Me, I'm hoping for a really impressive comet sometime soon. I enjoyed
Hyakutake and Hale-Bopp, but that was back in the '90s. And Comet
McNaught wasn't all that well suited to those of us in the northern
hemisphere.
