I don't know about you, but I often miss really cool events, not because I didn't want to attend, but because I didn't know about them. But don't worry. I've got your back, this time.
TONIGHT is peak viewing of the Perseid's Meteor Shower. Last night, we saw several, some neon green like a light saber.
So, sleep out with your kids with your eyes facing east, northeast. The moon will come up and ruin much of the viewing, but you'll be sound asleep by then! Brush up on some facts about meteors to share with your children and they will be sound asleep, too!
