no Perseid party this year

Double (triple) checked the Moon phase for this year's Perseid meteor shower peak. Considered that the RASC monthly calendar would be one of the best sources. Corroborated with StarDate and CalSky web sites. The Moon will be full on August 12! Boo!


This highlighted a number of errors that I had made. My notes for populating the RASC Toronto Centre calendar were incorrect. Glad I caught that before uploading.

I also discovered that I did not have the Jul 30 new Moon date in my (ancient) palmtop calendar! Holy cow!
