Perseid Meteor Shower This Weekend!

The Perseid meteor shower happens this weekend.

The Perseid meteor shower is said to be the best of the year, often bringing well over 50 shooting stars per hour in the northern sky.

This annual meteor shower comes as Earth passes through the tail of Comet Swift-Tuttle, causing bright streaks that appear as though they’re radiating from the constellation Perseus.

This year, the viewing opportunities are about as good as they can get.

The Perseids will peak this weekend between the 12th and 13th, when moonless nights will make for an especially dark sky.
