Are the stars out tonight?

Considering the intense storms that have recently occurred, I’m keeping my fingers crossed and planning to stay up late on the 11th. As the clock strikes midnight, I’ll be keeping my eyes on the northeast portion of the heavens. If you’ve never experienced the annual wonder, I urge you to take a nap and do so. The Perseids is (IMHO) one of the most magnificent displays Mother Nature provides, and is something everyone should experience. With no effort involved, even I can accomplish this simple goal. All we have to do is look up, make a wish—and gaze at the stars.
