|Perseid Meteor Shower BBQ|
The annual Perseid meteor shower is looming again, which means that the annual NIAAS bbq and observing session is almost upon us.
No optical aid is needed to see the meteors, although by all means bring your telescopes and binoculars along for some regular observing as well as meteor watching. A comfortable seat, or even a sun lounger, is useful, and if you are so inclined, you can bring along pencils and paper or a counter of some sort to record the number of meteors seen.
Cooking equipment will be provided, but please bring your own food and drink. If you have a portable barbecue, bring it with you, as the more cooking facilities we have, the quicker everyone will get fed. We'll try to provide some boiling water for tea and coffee.
Make sure to wrap up warm, and bring a blanket or even a sleeping bag for extra warmth.
As always, let's hope for clear skies on the night. Hope to see a good turnout.
