Peak viewing for the Perseid meteor shower this year is between August 12 and 13, though it likely will be hampered somewhat by a full moon. If you aren't able to watch any "shooting stars" with the kids in your area because of overcast skies, you might want to check NASA's live video and audio feed below or at this link.
    "Make plans to chat with NASA astronomer Bill Cooke and his team from NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center as they answer your questions about the Perseids via live Web chat. Join them on Friday, Aug. 12 at 11 p.m. EDT—03:00 UTC GMT—then make plans to stay "up all night" until 5:00 a.m. EDT on Saturday, Aug. 13."
