Perseid Meteor Shower: Annual Show Hits The Night Sky This Week, Aug 10-13, 2014

This Summer's Biggest
Show Is In The Sky!

When: Aug 10-13, 2014 12AM-Dawn
Where: Northeast Sky,
25' degrees above horizon

Grab a lawn chair and a blanket -- and watch the show!

The annual August Perseid meteor shower probably ranks as the all-time favorite meteor shower of the year. This major shower takes place during the lazy, hazy days of summer, when many families are on vacation. And what could be more fun than watching this summertime classic?

No matter where you live, the 2014 Perseid meteor shower will probably be at its best on the nights of August 10-13, especially August 12 when the shower peaks. Try the nights before and after that, too. Before dawn viewing is best. You'll often see 50 to 100 meteors per hour. They radiate from a point in the constellation Perseus the Hero, and are typically fast and bright meteors frequently leaving persistent trails. Each year, the Perseid's combine with the Delta Aquarid meteor shower to produce the year’s most dazzling display of shooting stars! (Tips for best viewing below.)
