Forgot to remind you all about last Friday's partial eclipse of the sun, but thought I'd get a post in to warn you of the following marvels,
1. Partial lunar eclipse on the 16th August between 20:36 and 23:44hrs (maximum coverage at 22:10hrs)
2. Perseids Meteor Shower - although visible for a week or so either side of the 12th August, the shower reaches it's peak on the 12th and is expected to show approx 80 meteors per hour.
Enjoy!

Sorry, wrong thread. I misread it as anatomical feats and wondered what the spinster had to say. Or, is partial lunar eclipse some sort of code? And where can I get a Perseids Meteor Shower? Argos?

Thanks Spinster (great name by the way) I always get to hear about these astronomical events after they've happened so its great to get a 'heads up' (as we say in the air force).

Yeah, I somehow imagine that the pandemic has not been much of a great "leveler" for those poorest in our society. :( more
