It doesn’t always have to be the money that sparks the night sky! It can also be 109P/Swift-Tuttle, or its resolution traces. Better known as Perseids, or Tears of Laurentius. It’s especially good to see tonight. In our latitudes with a ZHR of 30-50! ZHR sounds great, doesn’t it? Is the Zenithal Hourly Rate (ZHR) of a meteor storm, i.e. how many shooting stars are visible per hour, allegedly by definition per viewer. What I can’t imagine, if two watch the ZHR rate would be twice as high.
One day after new moon at least the astronomical conditions are great!
For the grill the counterpart would be the AWP – the number of sausages that disappear from the grill per person per hour…
So tonight, while barbecuing, take a look at the – hopefully – starry sky.
