This normally minor meteor shower may bring a surprise this year with some predictions that it could produce between 100 to 400 meteors per hour on Thursday evening. The peak is expected around 10:50 PM CST.

Here is a good article from Sky & Telescope by Duluth astronomer Bob King. You should also follow Bob on his blogFacebook page, and his Twitter page as he writes about astronomy events we an observe regionally.
