Perseid Meteor Shower Peaks Tonight! (Sunday, Aug 11)
If you’re interested, the Perseid Meteor Shower is at its peak tonight (Sunday, Aug. 11). I’m going to take the kids outside tonight to check them out. They always get so excited seeing the “falling stars”! This meteor shower has one of the highest percentages of bright ones — plus this year it is peaking under a moon-free sky. You should see more than one-per-minute. The best viewing will be just before dawn (Monday, Aug. 12).
