August 12-13 – Perseid meteor shower
The Perseid meteor shower, with a frequency of up to 60 meteors per hour at its peak, is one of the most ideal showers to observe. This meteor shower comes from comet Swift-Tuttle, discovered in 1862. The Perseids are famous for their large number of bright meteors. Each year, this meteor shower will occur between July 17 and August 24. The night of August 12 and the morning of August 13 of this year will be when this rain will reach its peak. This year’s Perseid meteor shower is unaffected by moonlight (new moon), which is great for sky lovers. It is best to observe from a dark place after midnight. Meteors tend to radiate from the constellation Perseus, but can still appear anywhere in the sky.
