Perseid August 2018: When can I see the meteor shower? | Latest Norwich News
Last year, the meteor shower was more hard to see, as the moon was three quarters full.
The Perseids are produced when the earth moves through the debris left behind by the Comet Swift Tuttle between July 17 to August 24.
The August 2018 Perseid Meteor Shower is visible every night for about two weeks before and after its peak which occurs on the night of August 12th until dawn on August 13th. But it moves through the densest debris between August 11 and August 13. The Perseids are rich in fireball meteors that are very bright and often leave a trail across the sky that will last for a second or two.
Ryan Fox still in touch with US PGA Championship leaderboard
He reached the par-5 eighth hole in two shots and two-putted for a birdie to climb to four under and six shots off the pace. At the par-3 sixth he blasted out to 14 feet and sank the clutch par putt, then parred seven before the storm struck.
Skywatchers should be able to see between 60 and 70 per hour at the peak.
A New Moon occurs on August 11 which will make the night skies ideal for meteor shower watching before and after the peak night. However, the meteors can appear anywhere in the sky.
No astronomical equipment is needed to see the Perseid Meteor Shower; you just need dark, clear skies, something comfortable to sit on and look up.
If you are a star gazer, you need to be ready for a show this upcoming weekend! "This year the moon will be near new moon, it will be a crescent, which means it will set before the Perseid show gets underway after midnight", Cooke said.
Best viewing time? Well, you might want to take a nap before you head out there.
