The pinnacle of the annual performance of the Perseid meteor shower is at hand, with peak activity of this display occurring late tonight (Aug. 11) into the early hours of Friday morning (Aug. 13). 

The Perseids will appear to dart from a region of the sky near the famous double star cluster in the northern region of the constellation Perseus, which will be ascending the northeast part of the sky through the overnight hours tonight.
