2012 Perseid Meteor Shower on the Way

If you're out and about for the next several nights, don't forget to check out the annual Perseid Meteor Shower! The peak arrives this weekend, with 60-100 meteors streaking across the sky throughout early next week. Don't forget your jackets if you're out having a look at the sky.  Viewing is normally best away from the city limits and lights, and also later in the evening.

Clouds will continue to build overnight, which will hamper viewing in areas through tomorrow morning.   However, if you're up and about, have a look at the sky.
