PERSEID METEOR SHOWER You can see between 60 and 70 meteors per hour
09 August, 2018, 19:10
The Perseids are dust and debris from the Comet Swift-Tuttle, AccuWeather explains. Best of all, the slender waxing crescent moon will set at early evening, providing deliciously dark skies for this year's Perseid meteors.
But the shooting stars have only just began to build in intensity and will soon burst into the night skies in full glory between the night of Sunday, August 12, and the morning of Monday, August 13.
This year's Perseid meteor shower will be highly visible both Saturday and Sunday night, giving watchers ample opportunity to spot plenty of shooting stars.
It's nearly time for the annual Perseid Meteor Shower, and NASA expects it'll be the most dazzling meteor shower of the year.
The annual show is the result of Earth's proximity to the "gritty" debris of Comet 109P/Swift-Tuttle, Boyle said in a release. Dr. Bill Cooke with NASA's Meteoroid Environment Office tells CBS News that this year, spectators will be in store for a better watching experience due to diminished moonlight -- or in his words: "We won't have any moon messing it up".
The Perseid shower is named after the constellation of Perseus.
Israel strikes Gaza after rockets fired from enclave
Boys walk past a fence in the Israeli town of Sderot damaged by an earlier round of rocket fire from Gaza on July 14, 2018. In a written statement, the Ezzeddin Qassam Brigades, the military wing of Hamas, claimed responsibility for the attacks.
The Perseid Meteor Shower makes its annual display from July 17th - 24th; however, the shower's peak falls on August 12 - 13th. Consequently, viewers are in for an especially bright show.
But there is no need to search for the constellation because the shooting star will zoom across the sky in ever direction conceivable. "Comets and asteroids leave tiny bits of themselves in the orbital path that they take around the sun". Observers in mid-northern latitudes will have the best views.
Those who plan to catch a glimpse of the shower also will be able to see Mars until about 4 a.m.
On the odd occasion, however, the shower has been known to exceed all expectations during the peak.
Perhaps you might remember an awesome meteor show back in the early 1990s?
