Perseids Meteor Shower Will Be One Of Year’s Best Sky Shows

When the Earth's orbit crosses a trail of these particles they can collide with our atmosphere and burn up as shooting stars.

The meteors we see in August are fragments left by the comet Swift-Tuttle.

Skygazers can witness up to a whopping 60 and 70 meteors every hours.

This year's shower is expected to be particularly dazzling thanks to the darkened New Moon phase of the lunar cycle.

Google has put a front facing speaker in there in addition to the camera, giving it a look that stands out for better or worse. The Android 9 Pie release is the proof in the proverbial pudding that Android as an operating system has hit its stride.

"Under a very dark sky, you might see up to one Perseid per minute late on Sunday night or after midnight on Monday morning". And this coming weekend, another cosmic wonder will be lighting up the sky: hundreds of meteors during the annual Perseid meteor shower. Observers in mid-northern latitudes will have the best views.

The shower will be at its most intense on the night of Sunday to Monday morning.

This means the moon will set before the meteor showers stars.

Perhaps you might remember an incredible meteor show back in the early 1990s?

Dubai Tourist Racks Up $46000 in Fines in Rented Supercar
He said that he was concerned the tourist would claim to have lost his passport in order to obtain anew one and leave the country. The tourist is now involved in a stand-off over the fines, the $480,000 luxury Lamborghini , and getting his passport back.

Between midnight and dawn the shower's radiant, its apparent point of origin in the sky, will be pretty high up. That was most likely the Perseids.

Up! Seriously...just find yourself a piece of wide-open sky, without light pollution, lie back and look up. The meteors will appear to streak away from and out of the constellations of Perseus and Cassiopeia. "The Perseids will put on a great show". You can tell if a meteor is a Perseid by following its direction backwards and, if it's coming from the direction of Perseus, it's a Perseid. Just make sure you have a clear view of a large swathe of the sky and be patient.

The good news is you will be able to see the meteor shower with the naked eye. Half of watching a meteor shower is waiting around for them to appear.

If you head out to a big open space with little light pollution you will have a better chance of seeing them.
