    Perseid Meteor Shower peaks tonight

    If you can, head out to a dark spot around 1 or 2am. The meteors will appear to originate from about halfway up the sky in the NE. The meteors are caused as the Earth passes through the debris stream left by a comet.

    If you can't get out and watch them, you can listen to them. When meteors burn up in our atmosphere, they leave a trail of plasma behind. Radio waves bounce off this and return to Earth and can be heard. Just go here: Space Weather Radio: News and information about sunspots, solar flares and meteor showers

    Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep. mycroft16 on Twitter

    Unfortunately I live in downtown Los Angeles and won't be able to see them.
    To much light pollution.
    When I use to work up in the mountains you could see them clearly as well as the rest of the milky way galaxy. So pretty to watch.

    I missed it last night. This sounds so interesting that I think i'll research to see when the next meteor shower might occur. Do you know where I might find this information, Mycroft?
