For those of you who are living in a densely populated city already get what the topic says. And those of you who are not, well you guys are simply lucky!
Living in a city areas can be a big hassle for amateur astronomers. I mean we can only gaze at what, like 15 stars, barely 20. Now compare that to the same sky you see in Arizona! Even the images are breath-taking.
We only see the brightest meteors in the city-sky. Last year, during the Persieds, I only saw 80 meteors, peak night. Though they were 200-300 meteors per hour! 80 meteor in a night isn’t a shower, merely a drizzle 😦 !
However, Sirius and Jupiter shine bright!
BLAME LIGHT POLLUTION!
