Today’s #ABCs_p #handletteredABCs_2018 #handletteredABCs and #letterarchive #letterarchive_p is Perseids (“sons of Perseus”), the prolific meteor showers associated with the comet Swift–Tuttle, and so named because the point from which they appear to originate lies in the constellation Perseus. The shower peaks in mid-August. Did you know that the lyrics of John Denver’s song, Rocky Mountain High referred to the meteor shower on a camping trip with his family: “I’ve seen it raining fire in the sky.”🌠🌠🌠 . . . . . #artstagram #instaart @arches.art #perseids @princetonbrush #galaxyart #art_daily @uniball_pen #constellation #watercolorsketch #handtype #artofinstagram @arts.hub #dailyart #typespire #lettering #spaceart @tombowusa #handlettering #typography #typematters #cosmicart #moderncalligraphy #typegang #modernscript #slowroastedco #thedailytype #goodtype #brushscript @dailyart #weilis_cosmicletters @winsorandnewton @danielsmithartistmaterials @chroniclebooks @sakuraofamerica

From @natgeotravel | Photo by @babaktafreshi The World at Night project If you have clear and relatively dark sky this weekend enjoy the Perseid Meteor Shower, Aug 11 to 13. The peak is after Saturday midnight to the morning of Sunday the 13th but the bright moon rising before midnight vanishes a part of the sky so try the darker evening hours too (10-12). This annual meteor shower is more favored for the northern hemisphere but its visible from anywhere on Earth. The meteors don’t necessarily appear near the shower radiant in constellation Perseus, they can be anywhere in the sky. In ideal condition you might see a meteor or two per minute depending on the peak hour, light pollution, and moonlight. Photographed above was during the 2016 Perseids peak from Yosemite National Park in California, with iconic Half Dome and El Capitan in the foreground. Note the Pleiades (the Seven Sisters star cluster) and the reddish California Nebula in the sky, captured with my astrophotography camera which receives more red than regular cameras.

«Ho iniziato a scrivere in un giorno come tanti, ancora lo ricordo. La primavera era al proprio culmine, e quel giorno non v'era nulla che non fosse al suo posto. Tutto era lì perché lì doveva essere: i fiori dei ciliegi ormai maturi, le prime cicale e il loro canto, il sole e i suoi raggi poco più che tiepidi, la luna quasi nel suo massimo splendore; mancavano solo le lucciole, ma quelle sarebbero arrivate solo mesi dopo, insieme alle Perseidi. Era la fine della scuola e finalmente tempo di maturità, tempo di "diventare più responsabili di se stessi", ma solo poi scoprii che queste non erano altro che dicerie. Era un giorno come tanti, un giorno normalissimo, però... da lì, la scrittura, che tanto mi fecero odiare, sarebbe diventata la mia vita». ❤️ #words #poetry #school #cherry #sun #moon #perseids #comet #work #maturity #nature #writer #author #literature #love #son #sunrise #wood #thoreau #literature #citazioni #story #history #novel #may #spring #day #sunny
