    Thumbs up Spectacular Meteor Shower and Rare Planet Alignment Coincide

    The annual Perseid meteor shower is already putting on an excellent show, and the celestial fireworks have yet to peak. The main event is tonight. Meanwhile, a delightfully tight configuration of planets graces the evening sky.


    Rarely has there been a better time to go out, look up and enjoy easy-to-watch cosmic spectacles.

    I watch the sky every night and lately it's been spectacular. Two nights ago I did see a falling star just moments after sunset. I am looking forward to tonight's display.

    I agree, the sky has been awesome lately, we've been star watching a lot. I am sure tonight won't disappoint.
    Can't wait!

    I'm in California, 10:21 PM, not a cloud in the sky - I can see all the stars, but no action yet. Can I anticipate seeing anything tonight? I'm at 4K feet.

    Thanks!

    We watch every night and just came in (AZ here) tonight was very pretty for the alignment but fewer ''falling stars'' than other nights -- in a bit I am going back out to see if there are any late bloomers
    Just My Opinion

    Ok,I live in Alabama, and the sky has been very clear lately. I read about the meteor shower,and the sky is extremely clear. I went out and looked up for a while. Saw some activity that could have been meteor material - looked like falling stars, tho, so maybe that is what it was. Trying to go in and out quietly, since dh is sleeping and he gets up sooooo early - usually by 5am!!

    Just stepped out on the porch facing NE and nope -- pitch black (lots of stars) but no action -- am thinking I will have to rise early to ''catch it'' we were out at sunset and saw nothing. Lucky you with the wine....I just have beer LOL.
