If you watch one meteor shower all year, then catch the overnight Perseid shooting star display tonight.They also say to look to the Northeast sky (there's a diagram on their site.)
This weekend, the annual Perseid meteor shower peaks, sending hundreds of shooting stars flying through the night sky in what many experts call the best shower of the year.
"We expect to see meteor rates as high as a hundred per hour," Bill Cooke of NASA's Meteoroid Environment Office said in a statement. "The Perseids always put on a good show."
NASA has a chat you can join (It's not obvious to me how it works, but there is a comment box.) They also have a livestream, except it doesn't seem to be streaming.
I'm going out to check. It's not completely dark out and it looks like there are clouds covering the sky anyway. And it was so sunny and clear most of the afternoon and evening. Oh well.
Here's a 2009 report.
