Star-Studded Party!

The only thing to serve at a Meteor Party!

The only thing to serve at a Meteor Party!

Last week the Perseid meteors came to town. Have you ever witnessed a meteor shower? If not, its a real treat for your eyeballs! So exciting to see stars blazing across the sky! Where I saw it near Los Angeles at Deukmejian Wilderness Park, the park had organized a bit of a Perseid Party. An astronomer talked for a few minutes about what shooting stars were and where the mythology behind this particular shower. Then folks spread out blankets and set up chairs and looked up! The park had set out a few snacks: TANG (the drink for astronauts of course!), Sun Chips, Starbursts, and Moon Pies! A few folks had brought their telescopes and helped other folks see amazing things like Saturn, Mars, and a dying star! I wanted to post about this to try and explain how a little bit of effort goes so so far and how so many things happen in this beautiful world that can be celebrated with wonder and delight!
