Better Stay Up Late Tonight!

Tonight is our last best chance to view the Perseid meteor shower this year. If you've never seen this spectacular show, you have to stay up to watch the northeastern sky; if you have seen it in past years, you already know it's a don't-miss event. Click here for more information about the Perseids from National Geographic (this picture is from their website).
