  • Perseid Meteor Shower

    posted 3 months ago

    Best time to view this year's Perseid meteor shower will be August 12-13 after midnight (Sunday night/Monday morning). The night of August 11-12 after midnight (Saturday night/Sunday morning ) should be nearly as good. Prime viewing hours will be between 2 am and 5 am both nights, when an observer in a dark location can expect to see up to 60 or more Perseid meteors per hour. No optical equipment is needed, just lie back on a blanket or a reclining lawn chair and watch the sky. A dark site out in the country is best, but many Perseid meteors are bright and can be seen from the suburbs. Try to find a viewing spot where you can see a large area of sky but no bright streetlights, and remember that it takes a minimum of 15 to 20 minutes for your eyes to adjust to darkness.
