PERSEID METEOR SHOWER: The Perseid meteor shower is intensifying as
Earth moves deeper into the debris stream of parent comet
109P/Swift-Tuttle. International observers are reporting as many as 30
Perseids per hour from dark sky sites, a rate which could triple on August 12-13 when the shower peaks. Check http://spaceweather.com for updates and observing tips.
GOT CLOUDS? You can listen to the Perseid meteor shower on Space
Weather Radio, which is monitoring signals from the USAF Space
Surveillance Radar. Every Perseid that flies over the radar makes an
audible ping. Hear the echoes at http://spaceweatherradio.com
