Where to watch the Perseid meteor shower live stream if the weather ruins your view
The first total eclipse of the sun in 99 years that will cover parts of the nation from the Pacific to Atlantic is on August 21, but for space buffs, tonight brings a different kind of awe.
Experts say that next year looks to be better because the meteor shower will coincide will a new moon. In 1833, another Leonid storm reportedly had a rate of at least tens of thousands meteors per hour. The moon's glow will be especially bright this year.
23 killed in floods and landslides in Nepal
Last weekend in the central lowlands, four girls from the same family drowned when they fell into a flooded roadside ditch. An official said the government was yet to confirm the total number of deaths and the extent of the damage.
"I think under good conditions you might see one or two a minute, probably more towards Sunday morning rather than Saturday". An astronomer with the Royal Astronomical Societyreported that viewers may only see 20 meteors per hours if they are lucky.
If you stay up late to find your area covered in cloud, or you live in a busy city with high levels of light pollution, then you can watch the live stream here. And as this event is happening right before the aforementioned solar eclipse, it serves as a reminder of other interesting astronomical phenomenon. This shower is a yearly occurrence, as Earth passes through the Swift-Tuttle's tail of debris, we get an action-packed show of space dust. In fact, the meteors which we see nearly certainly broke off from Swift-Tuttle during its 1862 visit and not the 1992 visit.
