Still image of the radiant point for the Perseid Meteor showerThe Perseid meteor shower peaks tonight! The last quarter Moon will brighten up the sky, but grab a blanket, stretch out on the lawn and enjoy the show. You’ll find the radiant of the shower in the constellation Perseus which is under Cassiopeia in the northeastern sky. The meteors will originate from that area, but will be visible across the entire night sky. Best time to watch is around 1am to dawn. Who knows, if you stay up late enough you might just see Orion rising to the east. Want more info? Check out our Dome to Home "Understanding the Next Meteor Shower" from 8/4.
