How much can a perfect Analytical Writing score help?

I also got 166 on the Verbal (which is around 97th percentile)

For the record, I'm mostly applying for planetary science/astronomy schools, but individual anecdotes from physics would also be helpful.

It will improve your chances by 3.4%

What are you expecting by asking this? Obviously it will be noted and it's a positive on the application, and obviously it's much less important than things like your grades, letters of recommendation, research experience, and PGRE score. Run some statistics on the 4 years of profiles to get something more concrete than that.
