Perseid Meteor Shower

The Perseid meteor shower reached its peak Friday night, but it will still be around this weekend.  Unfortunately, some clouds may spoil the viewing.

Looks towards the northeast sky once it gets totally dark (between about 10 pm and 5 am).  It may be difficult (or not possible) to see if you are in an area with a lot of ground lighting (bigger cities, especially -- this is called light pollution).

Here is a link to NASA's full article on the Perseid meteor shower.
