Moving Stars

Top Men have spent the last few nights sitting outside the lab gazing at an active night sky. Two items in particular are worth observing.

The ISS (International Space Station) with the docked Space Shuttle is making brilliant, evening passes across North America. Check here to see where and when to look. (Select the ISS after choosing your location.)

And the Perseid meteor shower peaks tonight (Sunday night/Monday morning). Start watching around 10:00 pm, but the peak is a couple hours after midnight. If you miss it tonight, try tomorrow night.
