Weekend Planner Aug. 8-10

This weekend is going to be nice but Saturday seems to be the better of the two with Sunday Afternoon having a chance of Thunderstorms.
I have a mix of outdoor and indoor activities also checkout some Activities that have been listed before. since I am back from the Dino Dig I decided to find some places in NJ that you can dig for Fossils.
I will start with that.

Big Brook Preserve in Colts Neck NJ: Big Brook is one of the few sites on the East Coast where fossils may be readily found. The area is noted for a variety of sharks teeth and other marine specimens.
Shark River in Monmouth Co NJ: The stream cuts through sediments that were deposited during the Late Eocene and Middle Miocene.

Ramanessin Brook NJ: A Cretaceous period stream bed where many shark and fish teeth can be found. With hip waders, shovels, and screens members enjoy collecting dinosaur era fossils

The Perseid Meteor Shower is best about Aug. 10-12.
The Perseids are expected to reach their maximum on Aug. 12.
The exact time of maximum should be about 7 a.m. EDT on Aug. 12, according to Margaret Campbell-Brown and Peter Brown in the 2008 Observer's Handbook of the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada.
If so, the timing is very good for meteor watchers observing before dawn in North America, especially in the western states. And that morning, the waxing gibbous moon sets around 1:30 a.m. local daylight-saving time, leaving a dark sky for the next 3 hours.
