Perseid Meteor Shower Peak
August 12, 2006 12:59 PM Subscribe
The annual Perseid meteor shower
will peak in intensity tonight. The product of Earth intersecting with the debris trail from Comet Swift-Tuttle, the shower should be most dramatic shortly before dawn. More information on the shower can be found in various places
Those living far away from cities will have the best view, but there are lots of good photos
from past showers online for those immersed in city light, or blanketed under cloud.
