    Thumbs up Perseid meteor shower to light up night sky this weekend

    Put out the lawn chair, set the alarm and maybe bring something to wet your whistle while you gaze into the nighttime sky — the year's best shooting star show has started.


    August's annual Perseids meteor shower peaks Sunday and Monday, promising perhaps 70 meteors an hour those evenings.


    "The Perseids are the good ones," says meteorite expert Bill Cooke of NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Ala.

    Deuteronomy 18:10-12 (KJV)

    10 There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, or one who practices witchcraft, or a soothsayer, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer, 11 or one who conjures spells, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead. 12 For all who do these things are an abomination to the Lord.

    Heavy sigh... So now I know for sure it will be cloudy here, probably even rain. Always does when I get up, go outside to watch the sky at 2-3 am...

    I am with you there...we moved to the outskirts of a smaller city and I was thrilled with the idea of watching the skies during meteor showers. I swear, almost 100% of the time we have had cloud cover. This weekend, we have too much smoke in the sky to see anything.

    It is a clear here right now. We are going to try and see it tonight. We were watching last night, but didn't see a thing. We live right on the Great Lakes so no big city lights to distract from the show

    Saw one last night when I was out for 5 min. It was great. I wish I had time to stay out longer. Just taking the time to be quiet and do nothing was special.
