The Perseid Meteor Shower
Known as the most popular meteor shower of the year, the peak of the shower is August 12th at 1pm. Meaning that the night before and the night after will be the best show. This year because of the bright moonlight, there will be around 50 meteors per hour. It is best to watch the show where it’s the darkest.
