Soak This Week and Watch the Stars

 

One of the best things about night hot tubbing is the chance to look up at the stars. Many of our customers keep telescopes by their tub to get a magnified view of the heavens. A few minutes spent on the excellent website Astronomy Now will give you an idea of what’s going on in the night sky. This week look upward to the northeast just past midnight for one of the most spectacular celestial shows of the year. The Perseid shower will be peaking. Read on!

 

If you’ve every wished on a shooting star, here’s your chance to make lots of wishes. Early Tuesday you could see thousands of shooting stars which are actually meteors not stars. Meteors are the result of small particles entering the Earth’s atmosphere at high speeds, around 60 kilometers per second in the case of the Perseid shower, which results from the Earth passing through from the tail of Comet Swift-Tuttle, last in the vicinity of the Earth in 1992. Meteors appear as brief streaks of light flashing across the sky, and unlike many astronomical phenomena, are best seen with the unaided eye, rather than through a telescope or binoculars. So take a late soak tonight and look skyward, make those wishes and this could be the start of a whole new hobby: astronomy from your hot tub.
