Perseids Meteor Shower 8/11-12-13
A day before the New Moon, like all meteor showers, this one is best observed after midnight, and is caused by debris left in the orbit of a comet - in this case, Swift-Tuttle.

Sometimes I think we're alone in the universe, and sometimes I think we're not.
In either case the idea is quite staggering.

Thanks for the reminder rusty... These are my favorite ... Hope for clear skies... Perfect for a few nights camping in my breakaway on top of a mountain with no light scatter from the city ...and good thing I'm a night person and can stay up after midnight...
