Has it really been 2 years since I started this blog? I almost forgot that the TransientSky’s birthday is today, September 10.
The idea to do a blog had been in the back of my mind for quite awhile. It finally took the surprise activity of the September Perseids on the night of September 8/9, 2008 to push me to set it up.
Some fun facts about the past two years:
- the Transient Sky was viewed over 336,000 times (162,000 times in the past year)
- 446 posts were made (192 in the past year)
- over 2147 comments were written (1004 in the past year)
- the first post on 2008 Sept 10 was about the unexpected outburst of the September Perseids
- the busiest day was 2010 August 12 when 4,663 people visited to read about this year’s Perseids meteor shower
