|Perseid Meteor 2012|
National Meteor Day is also a good reminder that the Perseid shower, the most reliable of the year, is a little less than six weeks away. With the moon approaching a new phase - no moon - light conditions will be perfect this year.
Here is a link for more information about the day. For a forecast of what you can expect to see tonight and for the remainder of the week, check out the American Meteor Society's Activity Outlook page.
