Look to the Skies This Weekend for a Colorado Meteor Shower
11 August, 2018, 23:44
Like all meteor showers it is caused by particles of comet debris entering our atmosphere. The Perseid meteor shower is just around the corner, and we are here to help you see them! Well, that's because the 2018 edition of this celestial show is going to be extra, extra, extra cool and unbelievable. If weather permits, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration said it will be observed during its peak in the late evening and early morning hours from August 12 to 13.
Perseid meteors were known to appear from the constellation Perseus, but due to the wide range of cometary dust the planet is moving through, the meteors can be observed from any point of view during its peak. The moon will be at a crescent, which means more darkness to see more meteors.
The Perseids meteor shower will be visible nearly all over the world - but will be best seen in the northern hemisphere. Heck, even tonight you'll see a few.
Usually, on these peak nights it will produce 60-70 meteors an hour, but in bursts the rate can go up to 200 an hour. Lie on your back and look straight up.
