Was up early this (Monday) a.m., so stuck my head out the front door to see the Perseid meteor shower. Overcast skies. (Sigh)

But there's still tonight and tomorrow morning, when I'll be 80 miles from downtown Chicago. The weather forecast is for generally clearing skies, so tomorrow morning looks good.

Perseid is considered an intense meteor shower, because it produces 90-100 meteors per hour. This is a good year for watching it, because the moon is not full. Here's a video of the 2010 shower.
