If the weather is nice and the skies are clear, go out and look up. The Perseids meteor showers are out in full force. There is no moonlight out tonight which will make viewing the Perseids meteor showers easier to view. The showers are composed of remains of the Comet 109/Swift-Tuttle as it travels into the inner solar system. It is named Perseids since it is seen near the constellation Perseus.
If the weather is not so great in your area, do not be discouraged. These meteor showers occur every summer and you also can watch NASA’s life feed here:
