Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, AND Neptune will all be in the evening sky this weekend. And so will Pluto, if you still consider it to be a planet, but most amateur telescopes won't have a chance of spotting it.
The Alpha Persei (PER-see-EYE) Cluster is an open cluster of hot, bluish-white B-type stars. These kinds of stars are so energetic, they don't live long. So most of the B-type stars we can see in the night sky are, on the cosmic scale, practically newborns.
The Perseid Meteor Shower is great not only because it falls among the warmest nights of the year, so you don't really have to bundle up to see it. But also because it's one of the most frequent showers, producing up to 110 meteors per hour at its peak. That's a meteor almost every thirty seconds.
There's a lot in the sky this weekend for anyone with binoculars or a cheap telescope. Comet Neowise is still in the northwestern sky, but turn around and you'll see two slightly more permanent fixtures.
