Perseid Meteor Shower at Max This Weekend

If you are interested in catching a free fireworks show in the sky this weekend, Persied meteor shower will be at its best viewing tonight peaking at about 100 meteors per hour. Rainy or overcast? Not a problem because NASA will be hosting a live Internet feed from 8K feet in the Canary Islands.

As the Earth passes through the Swift-Tuttle's dusty trail, the comet debris slams into the planet's atmosphere and flares up in brilliant meteors or fireballs.
