If you can get outside of town and away from lights, maybe go out to the ranch or a park, take advantage of the opportunity to see a meteor shower as a result of the “dusty remains of Comet 109P/Swift-Tuttle.”  The shower should be visible to us tonight after around 10:00 pm.   Texas A&M International University will also be holding a meteor shower viewing event.
