Meteor Shower Coming Soon

Mammaw use to wake us up to see meteor showers. While tempting to do this to my sons... I am not sure. Still...

HERE IS INFO on the shower coming our way.

Perseid Meteors to Light Skies Sunday

At the peak of the storm, which occurs at 2 a.m. EDT on Monday, Cooke estimates as many as one to two meteoroids per minutes. But the show should begin around 9 p.m. on Sunday when the constellation Perseus rises in the northeast and continue until first light on Monday.

blah blah blah

For best viewing, try to find a dark spot, away from city lights and look east. For added bonus, Mars will be out, in full red bloom, in the constellation Taurus, just below Perseus.
