August 2014 Stargazing – Skywatching – Astronomy Night Sky
Here is your quick video guide to August 2014 stargazing and sky-watching of the astronomy events visible in the night sky: Venus and Jupiter are visible at dawn, Saturn and Mars may be viewed at dusk, and you won't need a telescope. Don't forget this month is the annual Perseid meteor shower through 17 August.
The Perseid meteor shower peaks the night of 12-13 August, but the bright moon that night will likely interfere with viewing some of the fainter meteors. The Perseid shower occurs each year when Earth travels through a trail of dusty particles left behind by comet 109P/Swift-Tuttle.
