    "PERSEID METEOR SHOWER:   The annual Perseid meteor shower is underway. Earth is 
    passing through a  wide stream of debris from Comet Swift-Tuttle, and each time 
    a fleck of comet dust hits Earth's atmosphere--flash!--there is a meteor.  
    Forecasters say the shower will peak on Thursday, August 12th, and Friday, 
    August 13th.  You can see Perseids flitting across the sky at any time between 
    about 10 pm on Thursday evening and sunrise on Friday morning.  Observers who 
    get away from city lights can expect to count dozens of  meteors per hour, 
    especially during the dark hours before dawn."
