Annual Perseid Meteor Shower Coming This Weekend

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.
