Perseids Meteor Shower Coincides With Friday Tini Time

The most wonderful day of the week just got a little wonderfuller. The Perseids meteor shower is near its peak tonight. On a Friday. The night we all raise our martini glasses to the sky anyway. 

Well, now we can raise them as we watch shooting stars in the sky.

According to Space.com:

"The Perseid meteor shower peaked overnight on Aug. 11 and 12 as Earth passed through the long trail left by Comet Swift-Tuttle, wowing night-owl skywatchers lucky enough to have good weather and clear, dark skies."

Apparently there will be as many as 80-200 meteors per hour! Here's a link to the full article.

That's a lot of glass raising, so make sure you've got a great glass to raise. Like, I dunno, "The Patriot" (pictured) with its star-spangled rim? Ha!

Keep on grailin'!
