Celestial fireworks tonight – FREE

A very popular meteor shower peaks this weekend. The Perseids will light up the sky with dozens of meteors an hour unti August 13.

The Perseids appear when Earth ventures through pieces of debris left behind by the ancient comet Swift-Tuttle. The moon e sets early so there won’t be much moonlight to hamper viewing. As the night nears dawn,  viewers can expect to see a meteor every minute or so.
