This cosmic PSA comes to you from Earth, the third planet from the sun and my current planet of residence. Tonight we will crash into a trail of debris left by the Swift-Tuttle comet, because comets are dirty litterers and we're always picking up their shit.

Accordingly, tonight we will be incinerating their nasty rocks and space dust in an atmospheric blowout party known as the Perseids meteor shower. Doors open at 10pm. Feel free to stop in late, because things should really get going around 2 and 3am.

Who's watching?
