Weather-permitting, tonight and tomorrow night should offer a great chance to see some celestial activity as the annual Perseid meteor shower (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Perseids) hits its peak.

The Perseid shower happens when the Earth passes through debris left from the Swift-Tuttle (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Swift-Tuttle) comet which last came this way in 1992. - source (http://network.nationalpost.com/np/blogs/posted/archive/2009/08/12/310592.aspx)

Look up!
