Perseids will light up the sky this weekend
Today’s Video of the Day from NASA Science News describes the “celestial fireworks” that will be produced this weekend by the Perseid Meteor Shower.
When the event peaks on the night of August 12th into the morning of August 13th, skywatchers will be able to see up to 60 meteors per hour.
The moon will set before the shower peaks after midnight, making conditions very favorable to view the meteors as they radiate from the constellation Perseus.
