Catch A Meteor Shower this Month

meteorshowerThe Perseid meteor shower is underway this month, and you can catch it right from your backyard! It will peak on the nights of August 11th and 12th, although all month long you will be able to see "shooting stars" often in the night. You don't need any binoculars or a telescope to watch this meteor shower, just your own two eyes and a spot outside that has as little light as possible. The darker your observation area, the more likely you will see more meteors! Get comfy, grab some snacks, and have fun! 

For more information on the Perseid meteor shower, go to earthsky.org.
