StarView: Perseid Meteor Shower

StarView: Perseid Meteor Shower

The Perseid meteor shower always peaks each year around the 11-13th of August here in the Northern Hemisphere. On those days the Moon will be just past its last quarter, so moonlight will somewhat obscure this year’s astral show. Perseid tends to be quite bright so you still should see 40 or more meteors an hour at the shower’s peak.  You can always wait until the 17th for Moon free sightings for much brighter meteors. We suggest you drive outside the city limits after the sunset at around 8 pm with the best time to view around midnight.
