The Perseid meteor shower is tonight.
We’re fortunate where we live to have some pretty dark skies at night. And it looks like tonight is going to be nice and clear, perfect for viewing the shower. (Last night the Milky Way stood out in all its regal haziness.)
We sat out and watched the Perseid shower last year and it was pretty spectacular. Hope tonight is just as good.
Here’s an article on Space.com (I love that domain name) about tonight’s show, including some observation tips: http://www.space.com/spacewatch/070712_perseid_meteors.html
