I can’t say that I have ever been “in to” astronomy, but after seeing the the largest full moon of the year (June 23rd) from an vantage point above the city, I’ve been looking up a bit more. When I read about the Perseid Meteor Shower coming in August I started making plans to be somewhere free of city lights to see this annual event.
Beginning in mid-July each year, with the peak of activity coming between the 9th and 14th of August, this should be one spectacular light show. I read that the 11th & 12th of August should be peak viewing. It’s possible to see 50 or more meteors in an hour.
