Meteor Shower

Submitted by ub on Fri, 08/11/2017 - 10:51

Meteor shower competes with the Moon during this August sky light and special effects show. This weekend is the right time to drag a chair, or blanket out and do a little stargazing.

The Perseid meteor shower, which begins Friday night and stretches into Saturday night, will have a higher-than-usual rate of about 150 meteors per hour. Unfortunately, some of the duller meteors will be canceled out by the brightness of the moon, which will be about three-quarters full. The shower happens annually when the Earth passes through remnants from the Comet Swift-Tuttle.

Look up tomorrow! Perseid meteor shower peaks this weekend
