August can be a difficult month, because it is the only month in the year without an official holiday.  BUT, what it lacks in days off, it makes up for in nights of beauty.  Every August, around the 10th of the month, The Perseid Meteor Shower begins and continues for roughly three nights.  Beginning around midnight and continuing through Dawn, the Perseids is probably the most popular meteor shower in North America.
A close second is this month’s glaze of the month, A rich lustrous black gloss glaze with lovely specks of white, Spectrum’s 952, “Meteor Shower” is a great representation of the deep dark night sky with nothing to block the view of a glorious meteor shower.  Additionally, drizzling other glazes over it creates a very interesting, almost nebulaesque effect.  Click here to purchase this glaze.
