Perseid Meteor shower at it's best tonight.



Over the weekend we are seeing a meter shower that will light up the skies, two meteors per second providing you don't suffer the bright full moon. Perseid meteor shower is a yearly offering from the heavens and can be spectacular when watched throughout the night sky.Tonight will be the most spectacular due to the passing of the meteor across the Earth and on it's journey through space.
Here's a link to a more complete story about Perseid and if that's not enough go to the NASA website.
