This year, the meteor shower will peak in the night between Monday, August 12 and Tuesday, August 13. According to NASA, Perseid meteors are moving at 132,000 miles per hour.

The bright, waxing Moon spoiled many meteor watchers' views of the annual Perseids meteor shower this week.

"They're best seen between 2am local time and dawn".

NASA's Marshall is home to the space agency's Meteor Watch Team, which will stream live the Perseid meteor shower later tonight. So instead of roughly 60 an hour, as there have been in past years, there might be 20 or 30 shooting stars an hour this year, experts say.

Allegiant adds new nonstop route to South Bend Airport
Every Thursday and Sunday, between November 14, 2019 and April 12, 2020, Allegiant is going to offer flights to Punta Gorda/Ft. The airline will also up its flights to Sarasota-Bradenton International Airport from three weekly flights to five.

As mentioned above, the further north you are, the better your chances of seeing a meteor will be.

Most of the meteors will be visible after the moon sets around 3 a.m., so this is definitely an adventure for night owls. The debris is left behind the comet and creates a giant oval that extends from beyond Pluto to around the sun. Those grains of sand and rock fall into and burn up in the upper atmosphere, creating streaks of light.

Spaceweather.com recommends waking up "early - very early - about an hour before sunrise, when the moon is low and the shower's radiant is high in the sky".

You may not realize this, but we get meteor showers as a result of comets.
