Neo created the topic: Perseids Meteor Shower tonight...
I'm certain that most folk who are into their science already know about our planet's atmosphere bumping into the debris from Comet Swift-Tuttle, but its going to be a great night to watch the sky tonight as the cloud cover will be minimal.
I went over to North Yorkshire last night and found a lovely patch of grass to lay on for a few hours after 11PM and loved ever second. Tonight should be even better so if you get chance to escape the light pollution its worth a trip! Or then again it could be day of the triffids!
Definitely worth staying up for (aren't most nights that involve laying on ones back in a field in the summer?!)
