Tonight is Prime Time For Meteor Watching


CIRCLEVILLE – Tonight will peak one of the best meteor showers of the year.

The Perseid Meteor shower is underway and the Next two days will be the best times to see a shooting star. Tonight the gradational pull of the earth will pull lots of debris from the shower causing about 50 shooting stars a hour.

Letting your eye roam over the sky is the best way to really enjoy the meteors. Find yourself a dark location and make sure you bring bug spray and enjoy. Peak times are early morning hours but you should be able to see them from dusk to sunrise.

According to Ohio News and Weather we will have partially cloudy skies tonight but you still will be able to see a good show.
