Meteor Shower Zenith Tonight

Tonight is the peak of the Perseid Meteor Shower, which is the roughly annual result of the earth passing through trailing debris from the Comet Swift-Tuttle.  In Hamburg its cloudy as usual, but I’ll be outside for a bit around 2am if it isn’t raining.  Tonight is just the peak, so tomorrow night it might also be worth stepping outside if you don’t live near a lot of light pollution.

Time to pick out some appropriate stargazing music….
