Perseids Meteor Shower

Don’t forget that the Perseids are tonight and peak at 11pm. The forecast for New England is rain of course but if there is a break in the clouds I suggest taking a look. This year’s Perseids are supposed to be more favorable since the moon will have set before the peak and the earth is passing through the debris cloud left by Comet Swift-Tuttle in 1992.(the parent object that spawns the Perseids)

You can find a guide to viewing the Perseids here.
