Default Perseids this weekend!

Coming to a cosmos near you! The Perseid meteor shower will be at its peak this weekend. It will be a crescent moon, so there should be plenty to enjoy, about 100 meteors per minute, according to experts quoted in the LA Times today.

In addition, Jupiter and Venus will sparkle in the middle of it, adding to the wonder.
