Want a free stellar fireworks show? Then grab a lawn chair, sit outside starting around 9pm Sunday night August 12th, and face northeast. The Perseid meteor shower is back and better than ever!
Better, because there's no moon in the sky what-so-ever, so the viewing should be pretty easy.
The best time to watch will be from 2am until dawn Monday morning, but you can still see them Sunday evening.
Have patience, it's not a "step outside, look up and BAM there they are" sort of event. You have to have some patience, sit outside for a while and scan the heavens facing northeast.
