Meteors, the flashes of light when small sand grain-sized particles rip through the atmosphere and cause it to glow, originate from the dross released by comets as they orbit Both the Delta Aquarids and Perseids occur under favorable lunar circumstances; a fat waning crescent moon for the Aquarids and a first quarter moon for the The Delta Aquarids have a northern and a southern component, and it is the southern branch which produces the highest rates. Expect to see between 5-10 hour from rural locations. The weekend hours just before dawn should yield the greatest activity, but realize that meteors from this stream will be visible all on a tarp or reclining chair with your legs pointing south and simply look straight up. Meteors from the Delta Aquarids will appear to fan out above a bright the south called Fomalhaut.

Deer Hunting At NCTC Slated The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service National Conserva- tion Training Center (NCTC) in Shepherdstown, has an- nounced its third annual deer hunting progr~im that will take place this fall. "We are excited about work- ing on the third year ~f this hunt with our neighbors and with our conservation partners in the hunting community and at the West Virginia Depart- ment of Natural Resources," said Rick Lemon, director of the NCTC. "We appreciate all of the support we received from people in the community during the programs over the last two years. Hunts such as this will help to control the deer popu- lation, keeping the deer herd healthy, while allowing for a healthy balance with the plant community and other critters that depend on this habitat," said Lemon. There will be three hunting dates open to the general pub- lic-November 26, December 3 and December 10 with a morn- ing and an evening session each day. S~ sessions and 15 pre-designated hunting stands available each session will pro- vide a total of 90 hunting op- portunities for members of the community. There will also be a special hunt on Saturday, Oc- tober 29. Hunters with disabil- ities will have the opportunity to apply to hunt on any of the four dates. All hunters wishing to partic- ipate in this hunt are required to have completed an approved state Hunter Education Course and attend an NCTC Hunt Orientation prior to the hunt.
