Perseid meteor shower this weekend

It’s too bad it’s late on a Sunday night but it might be definitely worth staying up late for.

The beauty of these meteor showers is that they are annual, and come on a regular schedule. If you can find a clear piece of sky out in the country, away from the lights of the city, you should be able to see about one meteor per minute. Stay for an hour or two and you should be able to see some low ‘earthgrazing’ meteors that stay lit up for several seconds or more.
