Hunka Hunka Burnin'...Rock

Going out to the farm to see if we can catch the Perseids tonight.

The Perseids, for the astronomically uninitiated, are an annual meteor shower that occurs this time of year. The cause of the meteor shower is a cloud of dust that passes through Earth's orbit at this spot. Because of the time of year, the meteors seem to be coming out of the constellation Perseus, which gives them their name, the Perseids.

(The Leonids in November are another example, they come from the constellation Leo)

Should be a good show, I think they peak tonight...
