The Perseid meteor shower dazzles stargazers each August, but this year's show was even more spectacular, in part because of the gravitational pull of Jupiter.
A few times each century, Jupiter makes the show a bit more interesting. This year is one of them, as Jupiter's gravitational pull is sending three debris streams from comet passes into a direct collision course with earth.
In the United States, the result is a stunning show of meteors - a result of debris dating back nearly a thousand years.
Weather conditions in New Hampshire were very good Thursday night for viewing. Friday night, expect more clouds in the sky. However, if you are able to find a patch of cloudless sky, look up. It may take a few moments for your eyes to adjust to the dark, but once they do, be prepared for a dazzling show.
