It's time for the Perseid meteor shower
Staying up late has its perks, especially this weekend when the celestial offering is a shower of fireballs blazing across the night sky.
So on a warm summer night with a slight southerly breeze, get out the blanket or the lawn chair and get ready for the annual show. The mosquitoes will have gone to bed and the skies should be at least partly clear to view the streaming meteors.
The Perseid meteor shower is expected to peak between 10 p.m. Saturday and 2 a.m. Sunday.
