Penny’s Tips Volume 72

Hi everyone!

This week’s tips to keep your human occupied are out of this world. Really, they are all sky and space themed. And I have a guest to help me who has a lot more experience with outer space than I do.

Yes, Alf is back. He promised not to eat any of us.

Did you hear about the comet Neowise? It is visible right before sunrise. You can get all the details by clicking here. 


Maybe they would prefer an Extroplanet Exploration where one can check out the surfaces of planets of other stars. You can also download free posters. Click here.


How about trying to spot the space station when it goes over? To find out when it is due in your area, click here. 


And don’t forget meteor showers. The Perseids are active from July 17th until August 24th. They will be at their peak August 11-12.


We are joining  Comedy Plus’ Happy Tuesday Blog Hop. 


Hope that keeps your humans amused until next week.



  1. Yes, we have heard about that comet! But we would have to get in our car and go out a ways until the trees do not obstruct the horizon…trees we love but, sometimes,…they just get in the way, MOL!

    I bet our Uncle would love to see that comet, he used to work for NASA. Sadly he lives in a nursing home now…he has Alzheimer’s Disease…sigh…so we will gather pictures and info for him to enjoy in his own way, (He is still pretty with it, just needs lots of help with day to day self care activities and meals.) (We talk on the phone at regular intervals, he lives 600 miles away from us…)

  2. Those are good tips of things to watch out for. I saw the Musk satellites when they were sent up recently. It looked quite eerie to see them all in a line.

  3. Thanks Penny, we and Humanmom love the skies and all that can be discovered above and beyond ☀☁🌈🌎🌟

  4. Hi Penny! Thanks for those “out of this world” tips. My Mom loves meteor showers – maybe we’ll get this on the calendar so she can see the Perseids again!

    Hugs, Teddy

  5. We’ve already been out to look for Neowise, but of course it was cloudy! And usually look for the Perseids every year. Great information, Penny…thank you!

  6. It’s been some years since I’ve seen a comet. I’ll be on the lookout.

    Thank you for joining the Happy Tuesday Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous Happy Tuesday, Ellen. Scritches to all the kitties. ♥

  7. Thanks for the tips, Penny! I enjoy anything that has to do with space. We’ve seen some gorgeous full moon sightings from our balcony.

  8. Cool tips Penny, and you look fetching today! We’ve always been into space. I remember when we watched the moon landing on TV. I’m that old, lol. Happy Tuesday to all!

  9. What excellent ideas! Outer space is such an amazing place. It is hard to believe that all of those little bitty dots out there are really huge stars and planets. Sometimes the kitties and I sit out on my balcony at night and look out at the sky. 🙂

  10. Mom was up at the right time to see Neowise, but we have too many trees around, and she didn’t want to go out in the street. Maybe she’ll catch it another night. Did you see it Penny?

    1. Very cool that your mum got to see the comet. My folks have not seen it yet. Live long and prospurr. XO

  12. Penny, I’m so glad Alf hasn’t eaten any of you. That’s such a relief. And your tips are astronomical! I love learning about all things outer space, so I’ll definitely be checking these out. Purrs!
