Meteor Shower

The Ursids is a minor meteor shower producing about 5-10 meteors per hour. It is produced by dust grains left behind by comet Tuttle, which was first discovered in 1790. It peaks this year on the the night of the 22nd.  This year, the nearly full moon will be bright enough to hide all but the brightest meteors. If you are patient, you might still be able to catch a few good ones.
