Perseid Meteor Shower 2019

The Persied Meteor Shower promises a great show if the skies are clear!

The Perseid meteor show is an annual astronomy event that happens on Earth between mid- July and late August.  In 2019, the Perseids will be peaking on August 12th, with the best viewing being August 11-13!  Many meteors will be visible in the night sky as Earth passes through the debris trail left by the passage of comet Sift-Tuttle.  This years showers should have up to 15-20 meteors per hour and the best time to view them is the dark hours before dawn. The Perseids this year will have to compete with light from the full moon, which tends to wash out the short-lived streaks of light the meteors create. In years when there’s no moonlight, NASA says, the Perseids typically produce more than 60 shooting stars per hour.
