Perseids Peak Tonight

View larger. Tom Wildoner exclaimed,

Tonight's the night to get out and look up. I'll be taking in the view from the lake.

The radiant point for the Perseid meteor shower is in the constellation Perseus.  But you don't have to find a shower's radiant point to see meteors.  Instead, the meteors will be flying in all parts of the sky.
