Don't Miss the Perseid Meteor Shower This Week!

Okay all you night owls and early risers.... The night sky has a great show this week and the crescent moon will set early enough so viewing will not be hampered.  Peak activity for the Perseids is August 12th - 13th and peak viewing time is just before dawn with approximately 50 meteors per hour!
