Perseid Meteor Shower

08/01/2005 11:28 AM

Every year from late July through mid-August, those of us in the Northern Hemisphere are treated to nightly fireworks called the Perseid Meteor Shower. The Perseids are brought on as the tail of Comet Swift-Tuttle comes in contact with the Earth's Atmosphere. This year brings an additional bonus: Mars will be brightly shining in the sky. If you only have one chance to look up and enjoy the Perseids, choose August 12th, as that is the peak night.

Fireworks

I always have problems staying up this late. I saw it once and I'm still waiting for my 50+ wishes. (That's a lot of shooting stars).
