Enjoy the Summertime Perseid Meteor Shower

August 11th & 12th will present us with the opportunity to view a stunning light show brought to you by the Swift-Tuttle Comet.  The Earth passes through the debris field of this comet annually.  The rate at which the gazers can expect to view this shower will be about 200 comets/hour, according to NASA, which is about twice as much as normal for this shower.  Watch this universal “orbiting sneeze” (Gesundheit!) here.
