Default Re: Get ready to sky-watch on Aug 12!

Having just re-read Skies of Pern, I'm pretty excited about watching the shower this year. It's been a long time since I stayed up late (and froze my buns off, as I recall!) to watch a meteor shower.

I'd suggest to all Pern and astronomy fans to re-read the first part of Skies of Pern before the shower, to get you in the mood. The first section of the book, before the fireball comes, has folks watching the Ghosts, which is Pern's annual meteor shower.
