PERSEID METEROR SHOWER - Look for the 2013 Perseid meteor shower to be at its prolific best from late late August 11 until dawn August 12! Great times to watch: after midnight and before dawn on August 11, 12 or 13. We give the nod to Monday, August 12 – in the hours between midnight and dawn. But any of these mornings should be fine for watching this year’s Perseid shower. See EarthSky link for details. - Perseid meteor 2013 photo via Barry Simmons at Lake Martin, Alabama.
