Shooting Stars of August

The peak of the Perseid meteor shower this year was probably this morning and the morning of August 13 – so you have another chance to see these meteors.

The moon is missing from the night sky and that darkness may bring peaks of 50 or more meteors per hour. Find the darkest sky near you late at night as you can. Even being in the shadow of a tree or building to block lights will help you spot a “shooting star.”
