65 - 100 Fireballs per hour in tonight's sky!Post: Nathan
The Perseid Meteor Shower is in our skies right now. I have to say I watched it from my backyard last night and saw roughly 1 every 5 - 10 minutes or so and that was before 10:00 pm. It will peak after 10-11pm. It was amazing to see balls of fire shooting through the sky. Some were brighter than others but they were all amazing to see. Just thought I would pass it on. There is also a special alignment of planets and moon as we pass through this shower as well so if you have a telescope, get out there and enjoy.
