In the early hours from moonset to dawn between August 8 and 14, skywatchers in the Bay Area will be able to see the spectacular annual show put on by the Perseid meteor shower. At its peak on August 12, the tiny cast-off comet particles will streak across the sky at rates up to 60 per hour. Stay up late, grab a blanket or a lounge chair, find a spot away from streetlights, and enjoy the show!
