The annual Perseid meteor shower will still be in high volume between 3 a.m. to 5 a.m. Tuesday.
The meteor shower happens every August when the earth passes through the debris from Comet Swift Tuttle and appear to come from the constellation Perseus in the northeast.
This year, the peak nights occur during a waxing crescent moon that sets at 11:47 p.m. Monday, unlike last night, the skies are much clearer as you can see from the satellite image on this post.
There is no special equipment needed to enjoy the Perseids as you can see them with the naked eye.
- Find a safe location away from city lights
- Allow time to let your eyes adjust to the dark
- Sit or lie in a comfortable position
- Enjoy the show! (hopefully)

Dry weather conditions made for a great day as thousands of runners participated in the 41st Annual Honolulu Marathon. Those who ran inspired others to participate next year-- while those who cheered from the sidelines helped motivate them to keep running.
It's the holiday season and that means parties, fun and for some, drinking. However, police are on the lookout for drunk drivers. One family offered a reminder on Sunday, why it's important to not drink and drive.
