August is a fine time to look at the sky.  Learn about the Summer Triangle, a star cluster that looks just like ET the Extraterrestrial, the Andromeda Galaxy, the center of our galaxy, Saturn and Jupiter, the annual Perseids meteor shower and why it is not so great this year, what to look for and how to prepare for the partial and total solar eclipse.
