Don’t forget…

This weekend, the Perseid meteor showers peak. The best days should be Sunday, Monday and Tuesday after midnight.

The Perseids are everyone’s favorite, because they’re a very good shower and they happen in August. So, no freezing your ass off to see the purty shootin’ stars.

Of course, even the very best meteor showers, you can stare at the sky a long time before you see one. It’s not like a roman candle, for goodness sakes, so take plenty of patience-enhancing alcohol along!

Good weekend, everybody!
