Skywatcher's Guide

The Perseid meteor shower is one of the best meteor showers we get to see every summer, with up to 100 meteors per hour. The Moon will be a factor this year since Full moon is only 24 hours before the shower's peak. But if we have clear skies, there's a chance you'll still get to see some space dust streaking through our atmosphere. Watch out for the Perseid Meteor Shower August 11 and 12!
