There are truly few things that I love more than looking at the night sky. Ever since my childhood at summer camp, I've loved laying outside and gazing up at a crystal clear night sky. And this week we'll have not one, but a trio of treats in the skies over Ocean County.
I've talked before about my love for the night sky, and while you'd normally have to get far away from city and suburban light pollution for unique views, over the next few days a rare opportunity is visible throughout Ocean County.
I've talked before about my love for the night sky, and with the annual Perseid meteor shower at peak activity the next few nights, it's a perfect time to find a nice, dark place to do some sky watching.
You'll probably be up late tonight anyway finishing those last minute taxes, so take a few minutes to step outside for a somewhat rare celestial event. Tonight (well, actually early tomorrow morning), there will be a "blood moon" lunar eclipse.
