Thought I would make an astronomy thread. The Perseid meteor shower peaks tonight and tomorrow night. The new moon will provide dark skies and great viewing. Last year was exceptional in numbers, over 100 per hour. This year should be in the 60+ an hour. The perseids produce the most fireballs of all the showers and have a huge window for viewing, 2 weeks on either side of the peak. I saw a fireball last weekend while fishing at night. Northern latitudes are even better this year.
