Perseids Meteor Shower 2010

The Perseids Meteor Shower event was a huge success this year with clear skies arriving just in time for a great display. While numbers of meteors were down for the year it was a dark sky with no moon. KHMR has hosted this event for the past six years now and I love being the speaker for the event. There were about 60 people this year in total and all seemed to be having a great time.

Here is the low down:

Viewing Time: 11:00-12:30
Visuals: 79 Total
Perseid Related Meteors: 71
Non Perseid Meteors: 8 (all but one from SW)
Fireballs: 2 both Perseid related
