Just a reminder about the meteor shower. From Pat at Born Again Redneck:

Perseid meteor shower
In the Middle Ages the Perseid meteor shower was known as "The Tears of Saint Lawrence" because it occurs on the anniversary of the martyrdom of St. Lawrence. This year it will be particularly spectacular because it's a new moon i.e. an invisible moon. If you've never see it before, treat yourself to some celestial fireworks. The first time I saw it, I gave up counting shooting-stars after I reached 52 in less than an hour. [...]

Read the rest for more details, pictures, links, and a NASA video too. And a link to my prior post on this topic.
