Annual Perseid Meteor Shower Coming This Weekend

Annual Perseid Meteor Shower Coming This Weekend Perseid Meteor Shower to put on show over South Florida

According to NASA, you would be able to see some meteors at 10 pm, but they suggest to wait until pre-dawn hours for best viewing.

You might want to go to bed a little later the weekend of Aug.11 because the best meteor shower in years is about to happen.

The Perseid meteor shower is also an indication that we are coming down to the final stretch of summer. This year, the moon is in its new phase, which means it won't cast too much distracting light. 2016 was an outburst year, which means the rate can be between 150-200 meteors an hour.

The particles, many no bigger than a grain of sand or a pea, blast across the sky at some 132,000 miles per hour and disintegrate high up in our atmosphere after making a brilliant flash of light.

Earth passes through the path of Swift-Tuttle's debris from July 17 to August 24, with the peak coming August 11-13. But Cooke said the Perseids are rich in fireballs, so the show should be spectacular.

Meteor showers are named for the constellation out of which they appear to come, according to the American Meteor Society. Then, sit back and wait while, looking at the northeastern sky.

What special equipment do you need to view the shower? The last time Swift-Tuttle passed near Earth was in 1992, which was so large that earth spends weeks inside the debris zone it left behind. This may cloud up our skies, as we try to view this annual shower.

One of the most interesting and handsome things anyone can see in the night sky are meteors!
