Perseid Meteor Shower at PVJHS 2018

Excellent event tonight!

Thank you to all the Quad City Astronomical Society members that showed up to help!

I haven’t counted the signatures in the book, but I’m estimating between 200 and 300 guests attended tonight’s event. I think that’s a record breaker!

Folks started arriving around 7:30 PM and like last year, we started packing up shortly after midnight.

Along with a few dozen meteors, guests saw the planets Venus, Jupiter, Saturn, and Mars, and quite a few satellites.

Some saw a presentation on spectroscopy, discussed the Perseid event and saw the constellations in Stellarium on a large screen along with a number of DSO pics, and watched the sky via a live AllSky Cam!

Great job to all the members, and thank you to all our guests!

We’ll do this again next August. Make sure you plan ahead!

Clear skies!
