Tomorrow night the moon is scheduled (pdf) to rise at 8:45pm, and it's a full moon. Certainly worth checking out; last night it was beautiful, almost full and well, luminous. Sadly the moon's lovely light is going to block one of my favorite parts of August, the annual Perseids meteor shower. I'm sure some will be available, and besides, who really needs an excuse to stay up watching the sky on a beautiful summer night?
