perseid meteor showers' grand finale is tonight!

i am revving up for the perseid meteor showers' grand finale tonight. The Perseids light up the night when Earth passes through a trail of debris left behind by the comet Swift-Tuttle, which swings past the sun roughly every 130 years. Tuesday night through Wednesday dawn offered viewers the best chance to see the most Perseids without as much glare from the waning gibbous—or just past full—moon. it still has some punch tonight: skies appear to be clearing here in heathsville, virginia and i am optimistic i will get a super show early this morning.
