As Indonesian I was really not grateful (hmm, maybe not me) enough that I am able to be a viewer of the whole, both sides of the sky, able to see both Crux and Ursa Mayor, sure truly a blessing, for the whole year.
I don’t know why, seems like my writings lately are mostly about maps? I wonder… Anyway, tonight and yesterday night were the peak of Perseid Meteor Shower this year (mostly yesterday, but today should be quite fine). As I live far from
civilisation the city this year, the result of the quick sighting I’d done last night was quite nice. Though I didn’t venture far from the flat, I could see a lot of shooting stars (basically the shower part) coming from the east (where Perseid was located these time of the year before the dawn), and I believe there’s a fireball too!
With this infographic, I have benefits of not needing to write about the meteor shower and not needing to write a lot as this article seemed long enough already
I have some of the files, but I think it’d be easier to link to their pages as well (so that if anyone asks me I can just link him/ her this). Basically you can just go to their own respective websites, but having them in one place will help (and also, especially for my Indonesian students/ friends). I try to link to official websites if I can. If I don’t have the links but I have the files, will upload them.
