If you like star gazing then this Saturday night will be perfect to watch the Perseid Meteor Shower. Art Maurer from Joliet Jr. College Trackman Planetarium says there won’t be a moon in the sky to spoil the show. The Perseids is one of the best meteor showers of the year and peaks this weekend. Look to the northeast starting at about 9:30 p.m. Maurer says all you’ll need is an armchair.
