The best entertainment value this weekend is the Perseid meteor shower, which will actually peak on Monday and Tuesday. I am lucky enough to be working the graveyard shift this weekend, so I will be awake and alert during the best meteor-watching times. The proximity of New York City, with its all-night lights, will somewhat curtail the amount of meteors that I will see, though.
That being said, I saw four really nice "shooting stars" in the wee hours of this morning. I didn't even make any preparations for meteor watching, mainly because yesterday was a cloudy, rainy day and the skies cleared pretty late- I just happened to look up at opportune times. Tonight and tomorrow night, I'll be better prepared... I'll stake out a comfortable spot on the property and settle in with a couple of friends for this weekend's free show.
