For all of you who like to star gaze or just enjoy a good meteor shower, The Perseids are currently visiting the night sky. The peak times for best viewing will occur tonight for the denizens of North America and tomorrow for those of you in Eurasia. Pick a spot, bundle up and warm up your favorite drink – if your timing is right you’ll be treated to a pretty special event. For those camera geeks out there take your tripod along and make sure you set it up for a long exposure. Remember, star gazing is more fun when you share it with someone so don’t be afraid to drag friends or a special someone along to enjoy the show.
