The best meteor shower of the year peaks Aug. 11th-13th when Earth passes through a stream of debris from giant comet 109P/Swift-Tuttle. The Perseid meteor shower produces dozens of fireballs a whole week before the shower peaks. Exploded fireballs reported all over the globe. NASA's network of all-sky meteor cameras is already picking up strong activity over the USA. Observers should be able to see between 70 and 90 per hour at the peak. The Perseids appear to radiate from the constellation Perseus, visible in the northern sky soon after sunset this time of the year. Meteors or shooting stars, are easy to spot, all you need is clear skies and a pair of eyes. Clear Skies Everyone!
