Two more weeks and the calendar looks full. Tonight the moon will be brightest, as was the full moon yesterday. The moon was located on the opposite side of the earth like the sun and thus fully illuminated. This full moon is known as the Full Lunar Moon, because at this time of year, the Great Lakes of Great Lakes in North America and other large lakes can be caught easily. This moon is also known as the Green Corn Moon and the Grains Moon.
The Perseid meteor shower is one of the most anticipated annual showers where you can see up to 100 meteors per hour. Made by the Swift-Tuttle comet, it was discovered in 1862 and is known to produce a large number of bright meteors. The shower is open from July 17 to August 24. It reached this year on the night of August 12 and the morning of August 13 and will be visible for another nine days. And don't worry about the full moon, as it has no chance of overshadowing bright meteors.
A-hunt we will go
The hunter Orion returns to the sky later this month. The return of this constellation marks the coming Essen and is a sign of the changing sky. Look at this constellation an hour or two before dawn east. There will be two new moons this month. The first was on August 2, and the next will be on August 30.
This is a good time to observe weak objects such as galaxies and star clusters, because there will be no moonlight to interfere.
On August 21, you will see the fourth peak of meteor shower. The Cygnid meteor shower is not as popular as you can see with just five meteors per hour.
