Welcome to Know Your Night Sky! In the next 5 months we will introduce you to a number a cool things you can look at in the night sky and a number of events that are happening related to the night sky. The first month, August, is dedicated to meteors. During the month of August we will post fun facts about meteors and why we study them at NASA.
We would also encourage you to go out and see your own meteor, and it is a great month to do that because the Perseid meteor shower is happening this month. The peak will be August 11 and 12. Check out the theme pages for more information about each month's topic.
