Misc Ramblings
olive was our top cruncher today with 3,925, Dave Rave snagged second with 2,557 and squito landed in a nice third with 1,711 Credits.

QUAD XEON, who landed in 6th on the top cruncher chart also managed to tie for Top Mover with our number 3 cruncher, Squito.. So that means we had 2 doubles in the same categories at the same tyme.. nicely done.. and it only took a 1 place move up the team charts to do it. SWEET!!!!

Anyways, thats all I have for you today.. sleep well at work kids :)

Perseid in the Light
Credit & Copyright: jimmy westlake (colorado Mountain College)

Explanation: dark skies are favored for viewing meteor showers -- so many are pessimistic about this year's Perseids. while the Perseid meteor shower is scheduled to peak this weekend, bright light from an almost full Moon will also flood the night and mask the majority of relatively faint meteors. Still, skygazing in the evening before the Moon rises (before about 10 PM local time) could reveal spectacular earthgrazing meteors. Persisting even later into the moonlit night can reward northern hemisphere watchers looking for occasional perseid fireballs. In fact, astronomer Jimmy Westlake imaged this bright perseid meteor despite the combination of moonlight and auroral glow over Colorado skies in August of 2000.
