      Space Weather News for 5 August 2005

      PERSEID METEORS: Don't forget, the Perseid meteor shower peaks on Friday
      morning, August 12th. No matter where you live, the best time to look will
      be during the hours before local dawn when the constellation Perseus is
      high in the sky. While August 12th is best, the nights before and after
      the 12th can be good, too. Even now, sky watchers are seeing occasional
      bright Perseids before dawn.

      Also, you can listen to the shower. Meteor radars are monitoring the
      skies above the USA; when a Perseid flies overhead, they record an audible
      "ping." Visit SpaceWeather.com for live audio, plus more information
      about the Perseids.

      10th PLANET: Astronomers have found a new world bigger than Pluto in the
      outer reaches of the solar system. Some are calling it "the 10th planet."
      Amateur astronomers can see this new world, temporarily named 2003 UB313,
      through large backyard telescopes. Some of their photos are displayed on
      spaceweather.com.
