The Perseids

Here’s my attempt to be topical while really writing this post many weeks in advance. I’m actually in either Nevada or Utah right now.

The Perseid meteor shower should be near its peak today. The rate of visible meteors will probably be around 60 per hour, so if the sky is even remotely clear, go take a look. The best viewing time, as always, is in the pre-dawn hours, but don’t think that means going out at 9:30pm won’t yield a spectacular sky.
