Meteor shower to light up the weekend

Lead in text: 
The Perseid shower is expected to reach peak intensity on Sunday and Monday nights.
Put out the lawn chair, set the alarm and maybe bring something to wet your whistle while you gaze into the nighttime sky - the year's best shooting star show has started. August's annual Perseids meteor shower peaks Sunday and Monday, promising perhaps 70 meteors an hour those evenings.
