Look Up !!

Look up Friday and Saturday nights (Aug. 11 and 12) for this year's Perseid meteor shower peak.
For Northern Hemisphere observers, August is usually regarded as "meteor month," with one of the best displays of the year reaching its peak near midmonth. That display is, of course, the annual Perseid meteor shower, which is beloved by meteor enthusiasts and summer campers alike. But skywatchers beware: You will face a major obstacle in your attempt to observe this year's Perseid performance — namely, the moon. (Live in a big city? Find out how to see the Perseids from urban areas here from our sister site Active Junky.)

OP here

We'll be out on the pontoon tonight hoping to see a few !
