Do you wish upon shooting stars? If the answer is yes, you better get stargazing this week! The Perseid meteor shower has been in full bloom this week and these Ontario Perseid photos will inspire you to get out and see it for yourself.\nAccording to The Weather Network, the meteor shower’s peak was Tuesday night, where up to 100 meteors per hour shot through the sky!\nFor the rest of the week, that number is slightly lower, but you still have a good chance of spotting a shooting star.\nEditor's Choice: Two People Got Shot At Toronto's Woodbine Beach Early This Morning\nTonight, for example, there are still projected to be almost 50 meteors an hour. Just get yourself to a good viewing spot, set up your blanket, and keep your eyes peeled!\nThese numbers are based on a totally dark viewing experience, which is hard to manage in the GTA, but TWN assures us that the average viewer can still see a meteor every few minutes or so!\nThe best time to spot the show is anytime between midnight and dawn, so if you’re really serious about spotting one, you may have to pull an all-nighter.\nThese Ontarians certainly pulled out all the stops to enhance their stargazing experience and it paid off.\nSo, what's the hold-up? Grab a buddy (or perhaps a date?) and a blanket, maybe a thermos, and spot yourself some stars tonight!\nThe best Perseid meteor I’ve ever caught. Just lucky.

So I'm glad I was still fortunate enough to catch a few.
