The annual Perseid Meteor Shower is underway now and is expected to peak the night of August 12-13. With the Moon being at New phase for this year's shower from a dark sky site you could see about one Perseid a minute.
|The Perseid meteors appear to stream away from the shower's "radiant" point near the border of Perseus and Cassiopeia.|
