I originally posted this message about TWO WEEKS ago!  Amazing that it is 
only now  appearing on meteorobs.  Maybe this afternoon's earthquake shook it 
out of  cyber slumber.

These next  couple of nights will bring us the best views of the annual 
PERSEID  METEOR SHOWER. 
 
Unfortunately, the bright, nearly full Moon will also be in the  sky, 
pretty much squelching views of the fainter streaks.  Still, in the  hour or two 
before the break of dawn . . . say 3 to 4 a.m. . . it might be worth  
checking out the sky to see how active this year's display might be.  Best views 
will be overhead and toward the northeast  part of the sky. This accompanying 
video, done in the style of a movie trailer,  is a bit "over the top" to 
say the least!
