Heads Up for Perseid Meteor Shower

The Perseid meteor shower, which appears annually between July 13 and August 26, will peak before dawn on Tuesday, August 13. The best time for seeing the Perseid meteors starts after midnight, when the shower’s radiant is higher in the north-eastern sky.

You will be able to see about 80 meteors in one hour during the night outdoors, away from town lights.

The Swift-Tuttle Comet with an orbital period of 133 years, is the parent body of the Perseid meteor shower. It will make its next transition in 2126.
