Perseids Meteor Shower This Weekend

The Perseids Meteor Shower will peak tonight / Monday morning. The skies will be free from light interference from the moon, as the moon will be in its new phase. Skies will be partly cloudy.  Viewing from a dark location away from city lights, you should see one to two meteors per minute during the peak.  Meteors should be visible for a few days after the peak as well. More information on the Perseids shower, please view this article from NASA.
