As I mentioned in an earlier piece, we've already had quite a good year for all things celestial.  It started with an extremely strong showing of the Northern Lights right here in Southwest Michigan.  In June we were able to see Jupiter's moons with only a set of binoculars and yesterday was the Solar Eclipse; albeit mostly in South America.  We've still got a half a year to go!  So what's next?

According to our friends at, dueling meteor showers will light up the sky on July 29th!  In fact, the American Meteor Society is predicting anywhere from 20 to 25 meteors per hour!!!  And get this, those who can get away from city lights, etc., should be able to see the glow of the Milky Way!!!  The American Meteor Society actually has a "meteor calendar" (of course they do) that you can go to.  Check it out and more by clicking HERE.
