(Newser) – Light show! The Perseid meteor shower is back, and peak viewing will be overnight tonight and into the predawn hours of tomorrow, reports Space.com. Drawback: A full moon will probably dim this year's show. Bonus to make up for that drawback: The International Space Station also should be visible over the next week before dawn. For specifics in particular areas, see NASA's Human Space Flight site.
