perseid meteors this weekend

The Perseid meteor shower is going on, it should be peaking this weekend. As the new moon was yesterday, the viewing should be pretty good. I wonder if any of my vehicle-enhanced friends would be interested in trying to go out where the lights are less intrusive to do some star-gazing in the next couple of three days... the best viewing is after midnight, so you graveyard shift people should keep an eye out. Perseus is the constellation from which the meteors radiate; it's supposed to be near Cassiopeia, which is also known as the big W (or M, to be topologically neutral).
