According to NASA
About the Perseids

"The Perseids have been observed for at least 2,000 years and are associated with the comet Swift-Tuttle, which orbits the sun once every 133 years. Each year in August, the Earth passes through a cloud of the comet's debris. These bits of ice and dust -- most over 1,000 years old -- burn up in the Earth's atmosphere to create one of the best meteor showers of the year. The Perseids can be seen all over the sky, but the best viewing opportunities will be across the northern hemisphere. Those with sharp eyes will see that the meteors radiate from the direction of the constellation Perseus."

 

LOCATION:

There will be plenty of parking at the end of the point on Breakwater Dr. (West End Park ) New Orleans.

    Had a great time despite the fact that the clouds were uncooperative! I'm going to go back and try again on Sunday night.
