From CSA astronaut @astro_kutryk:
A sunny day @nasakennedy. With @nasa quickly progressing towards the launch of new, human-rated vehicles in the near future, the Cape is becoming an even busier place. It’s 800 miles from Houston by T38. Always an interesting and scenic flight. Pictured, the massive vehicle assembly building, or VAB. The moon rockets were stacked inside of it, as will be SLS with Orion.

Tomorrow, the Perseids meteor shower will be visible and will peak on Monday and Tuesday. Ahead of the celestial show, we have a challenge. Can you spot the Perseus constellation in the sky tonight?

Perseus will lie just below the Cassiopeia constellation, or the big “W”. The meteors white streaks will point towards Perseus. In some cases, the Perseids will spread throughout the sky, because the dust that enters the atmosphere is distributed over a large area.
