Don’t Miss Out!

Don’t miss out on the Perseids meteor shower! The Perseids meteor shower is set to peak tonight as 100 shooting stars an hour are expected to streak across the night sky, and continue for several days. The Perseids meteor shower is the result of space debris from the tail of the Swift-Tuttle comet strikeing the Earth’s atmosphere. The Perseids have been observed for at least 2,000 years and are associated with the Swift-Tuttle comet orbiting around the sun once every 133 years. The Earth passes through a cloud of the comet’s debris each year in August, according to NASA.  A definite must see before it’s too late!
