If you have a couple of hours to spare tonight ...

... you might want to take in the Perseid Meteor Shower.
The Moon is least troublesome during the early evening hours of August 11th. Around 9 to 11 p.m. local time (your local time), both Perseus and the Moon will be hanging low in the north. This low profile reduces lunar glare while positioning the shower's radiant for a nice display of Earthgrazers.
It's one of the best times of the year to view meteor showers.
