Twenty days of haze.

July 7 was the last clear night, unobscured by smoke from Canadian wildfires.

The Perseid meteor shower is still a couple of weeks off, but in the meantime, Bob King says gather up your binoculars, your lawn chair, and your bug dope and head for the toolies where you can find a nice dark sky.

The sit back and take in the Milky Way.
