Perseid Meteor Shower

NASA Science News for August 10, 2012
The Perseid meteor shower is underway. There's more to see than meteors, however, when the shower peaks on August 11th through 13th. The brightest planets in the solar system are lining up in the middle of the display.

Re: Perseid Meteor Shower

Saw one the other night while chaperoning the state 4-h shooting contest. Was very close and bright compared to others I have seen.

Kids didn't believe me, thought I needed more sleep.

Space Weather News for August 11, 2012
http://spaceweather.com

PERSEID METEOR SHOWER: Earth is entering a stream of debris from Comet Swift-Tuttle, source of the annual Perseid meteor shower. Worldwide observers are now reporting more than 30 Perseids per hour, a number that could triple during the weekend when Earth reaches the heart of the debris zone. Forecasters recommend looking during the dark hours before dawn, especially Sunday morning, August 12th, when activity is expected to be highest. Visit http://spaceweather.com for sky maps, observing tips, and links to a live meteor radar.
