PDX Meteor Showers

The Perseid meteor showers start tonight - but the air in Portland proper has been pretty dirty of late - and it is a city!
So if you want to see the meteor showers you need to get way to a spot with no city lights...

OMSI is doing a meteor watch tonight - 9PM at Rooster Rock info here

Last year I could not see nay from my deck - but having seen these showers in the past when I was in "cleaner sky areas" - if you can get away do so - it can be awe inspiring!
