Let's check out some stars!

The Perseid Meteor Shower goes down tonight. You can use this handy-dandy Fluxtimator to see when the most celestial activity will happen in your area.

Dallas is the nearest city listed on the chart, so I'm assuming that Houston will also have the most visible activity between 3 and 5 a.m.

As I don't have work tomorrow, I think I may load up the dog and go spend the night on the boat to see the show. It just depends on whether or not we have cloud cover tonight. I may attempt to catch some groovy time-lapse photos of the event as well, but as the boat is constantly moving, I'd have to find a place on land to set up for that.

If you've never experienced a meteor shower, it's something you never forget.
