Perseid meteor showers

PERSEID METEOR UPDATE: Last night (Aug. 12-13), NASA's network of all-sky meteor cameras recorded 139 Perseid fireballs over the USA. At the same time, members of the International Meteor Organization counted more than 90 Perseids per hour in ideally dark-sky sites. These facts suggest that the Perseid meteor shower is peaking on August 13th, as expected. If it's dark where you live, be alert for Perseids!

We had a combination of cloudy skies and too much moon this year. I usually head to northern Centre County for the annual shower, not heading up this year until Thursday. I did see some nice meteors a week ago at camp.
