Meteor shower peaks tonight
Directions for watching the annual Perseid meteor shower: Go outside. Lie down. Look up.
The Science@NASA Website said the dusty debris from Comet Swift-Tuttle is the source of the Perseid meteor shower. It peaks on August 11-12, when viewers should be able to spot dozens of meteors per hour. Although Perseid meteors can appear in any part of the sky, all of their tails will point back to the Perseids radiant.
Spotting even one long, slow meteor can make the night worthwhile.
