LOOK UP! Perseid meteor shower peaks this weekend!

KHQ.COM – Earth is currently passing through the path of Comet Swift-Tuttle and the best meteor shower of the year will happen this weekend as a result.  The shower’s peak will be visible both nights of August 11-12 and August 12-13, with NASA meteor expert Bill Cooke saying the August 12-13 show would be the better of the two. Although not an outburst year (150-200 meteors per hour) spectators should see about 60-70 meteors per hour this weekend.
