The Perseids are here today, gone tomorrow!

The Perseid meteor shower is subsiding. According to the International Meteor Organization, the shower peaked on August 12th with 180 meteors per hour! Now Earth is exiting the debris stream of Comet Swift Tuttle and rates are dropping back to normal lows. The moon did not keep these beauties from shining on through the sky!
