Did Susan know our August meeting this Saturday would coincide with the annual Perseid Meteor Shower?

From the EarthSky.org website:  As evening deepens into late night, and the meteor shower radiant climbs higher in the sky, more and more Perseid meteors streak the nighttime. The meteors don’t really start to pick up steam until after midnight, and usually don’t bombard the sky most abundantly until the wee hours before dawn. You may see 50 or so meteors per hour in a dark sky 

Maybe she did.  Maybe she didn't.

I'm looking forward to seeing all of these blocks up close, as well as the additional blocks that haven't been posted to our Facebook group.
