If not tonight may be your luck night. The Perseid meteor shower is at its height tonight, August 12th. WHAT? You don’t know what the Perseid meteor shower is? Well here is a link to the American Meteor Association, that will explain it to you, just scroll down the page. Also in their site is a map of where to look in the sky and recommendations of the best viewing times. You can watch when the sun sets, but unfortunately the best viewing time is right before sunrise. So, we don’t blame you if you can’t wake up that early. And, since they make an annual appearance, there is always next year…
Ever see a meteor?
