Food for Thought Image of the Week Tuesday, August 7 Venus, Jupiter, and Mars currently outshine them, but the two brightest stars of summer are Vega, overhead shortly after nightfall, and Arcturus, shining in the west. Draw a line down from Vega to Arcturus. A third of the way down, the line crosses the dim Keystone of Hercules. Two thirds of the way down it crosses the dim semicircle of Corona Borealis with its one modestly bright star, Alphecca or Gemma. Vega and the Keystone's star closest to it form an equilateral triangle with Eltanin, the nose of Draco the Dragon, to their north. Eltanin is the brightest star of Draco's quadrilateral head. He's eternally eyeing Vega. Wednesday, August 8 With the advance of summer the Sagittarius Teapot, now moving into the south after dark, is starting to tilt The Teapot will tilt and the rest of the summer or for much of the night if you stay out late. and pour from its farther spout to thefarther right. for Saturn stands above the spout. Thursday, August 9 Bright Vega passes closest to overhead soon after dark now. How closely it misses your zenith depends on how far north or south you are. It passes right through your zenith if you're at latitude 39 north (Washington DC, Cincinnati, Kansas City, Lake Tahoe). How closely can you judge this by looking? Then Deneb crosses closest to the zenith almost exactly two hours after Vega. Friday, August 10 It's Perseid weekend! The annual Perseid meteor shower should come to its peak late Sunday night August 12th. Already the meteors are increasing in number. You may have noticed a few early Perseids as early as a week or two ago. Conditions are ideal this year. There's no moonlight, and the shower's predicted maximum comes during

nighttime for Europe and North America on the night of August 1213. Whatever the night you'll see the most meteors when the shower's radiant is high: from about midnight to dawn. On peak night you may see one or two meteors a minute on average during this time if your sky is very dark. There will be fewer in the evening, but the ones you do see when the radiant is low will be "Earthgrazers" Sky & Telescope ISS Sighting Opportunities Story #1 Story #2 Story #3 ISS For Denver: Date Visible Max Height Appears Disappears Tue Aug 7, 8:50 PM 4 min 59 34 above NNW 12 above ESE Tue Aug 7, 10:25 PM 1 min 13 10 above W 13 above WSW
