If You Can Stay Up Late Tonight Go Outside And Watch The Perseid Meteor Shower!
The Perseid Meteor Shower peaks this weekend. According to EarthSky.org the best viewing should be tonight (Sun 8/11) around midnight and before dawn but also Monday and possibly Tuesday as well. My understanding is that before sunrise is a pretty good time too. [VIDEO]
According to Wikipedia we humans have been looking at the meteor shower for around 2000 years. Here's a pretty well done time lapse video of the meteor show back in 2009.
