The Perseid meteor shower is the brightest and most popular meteor showers of the year. It will be visible at its peak from Tuesday night to Wednesday, so make plans to stay up late tonight to witness this celestial phenomenon. It was recently snapped in a video by NASA’s All-Sky Fireball Network that looked like fireworks.
This isn’t the first for Perseid meteor shower to put up a show at the night sky. It comes every year between July 17 and August 24, but this time it is coinciding with the last quarter of the moon phase, which will reduce the visibility of meteors from over 60 per hour down to 15-20 per hour. You can still watch the Perseid meteor shower as they are quite bright and the best in the year.
