The 2013 Perseid Meteor Shower Begins!

The Perseid Meteor which peaks in August every year around the 12-13 is getting an early start!
The Perseid Shower is famous for producing more fireballs than any other meteor shower.
I've noticed an uptick in nightly meteor captures on my skycams for the last few nights.
Below is a small video I created from the captures on the nights of Aug 3-4.
Say tuned for more spectacular shows in the nights to come!
