Perseids Metor Showers - An amazing celestial event coincides with the season of Lughnasad. Radiating from the constellation Perseus, a spectacular metor shower known as the Perseid metor shower the night sky beginning around July 17th and peaking on August 12th, continuing to put on an impressive show until August 24th, With its theme of hope, there is perhaps no season better suited to wishing upon a shooting star, and the night skies on Lughnasad will be full of them. You can expect sightings of between fifty and 100 metors each hour.
   The Perseid metors are often referred to as 'the Children of Perseus.'  Look for the constellation Perseus along the northern horizon. Although the metors can appear in any part of the sky, they will originate from the radiant constellation. The metor show is best viewed after midnight, for at this time the rotation of the earth will allow you to be facing the metors head on, as opposed to viewing them from behind. A bright full moon and even a quarter moon can greatly interfere with the numbers you of metors that you will be able to see if any as well as the glare of city lights. Think of all the things you are hoping will come to pass in the near future as you witness the falling fires from the heaven.
