The Perseids

The annual Perseid meteor shower reaches its maximum tonight and tomorrow night - or, rather, in the early hours of the morning.  We're fortunate this year that a new moon which sets around 9.00pm leaves the sky dark.  Our problem, as always, is cloud cover.

There's more about the Perseids, and advice on when and where to look for them, on the EarthSky site here.
