The next several early mornings before twilight look for meteors of shooting stars, especially away from ares of heavy city lighting, in the countryside.

It’s part of the Perseid meteor shower that peaks this Friday morning although unfortunately the full moon is going to wash out all but the brighter meteors.

The best way to look for them is to lie back in a reclining lawn chair and roll your eyes all around the skies. Meteors in meteor showers are best seen after midnight.
