Perseid Meteor Shower This Week

As you've all probably heard, this week is the peak of the annual  Perseid meteor shower. The shower usually has a good showing the night before and after, but the best night will be the night between Wednesday and Thursday.

As with any meteor shower, you can view it from any dark location, the darker the better. That means to get away from city lights, lie down on a blanket and just look up.

This year there are many groups around the country from the Negev to the Gallil, that are organizing viewing events. For a list and description in Hebrew see Gadi's blog at http://gadieid.blogspot.com/2011/08/perseids.html
