Spectacular Perseid Meteor Shower Possible This Week
The 2015 Perseid meteor shower begins tonight across Central Minnesota, and you could be treated to 50-100 meteors per hour tonight through Friday -- with peak viewing times between Midnight and dawn. A waning crescent moon-rise just before dawn will ensure dark night skies for prime meteor viewing.
