Perseids 2011

The Perseids are here again. This year, the peak of the shower will be in the night between August 12 and August 13, a Saturday conveniently. 100 meteors per hour are expected so even though it will be a full moon, we should get to see a lot of them. The peak time will be at 9am, but any time between 2am and dawn will be a good time.

So find yourself a dark place with a good view of the sky all around, bring a blanket or maybe a deck chair, some warm clothes and enjoy the show.
