Meteor Showers Light Up Weekend Skies

Meteor Showers Light Up Weekend Skies

"Shooting stars are set to grace the night sky with a spectacular light display this weekend. The annual Perseid meteor shower will reach its peak sometime after midnight Sunday, but it will be visible from Saturday night until Tuesday morning." Look for the celestial show in the north-eastern part of the sky, to be most apparent from North America and Western Europe. A darkened moon will provide the best view in years, best observed away from city lights in clear weather. More info at BBC and from CBC, continued below. Thanks Andrew!
