Perseid meteor shower, when will this space show happen?

The Perseid meteor shower is the most anticipated space show of the year and one to be seen. The event, which began in July and will end in late August, will be more visible on the nights of the 12th and 13th of this month.

Also known as the ‘Tears of St. Lawrence’, this meteor shower is one of the most visible showers in the night sky, with 50 to 100 shooting stars per hour. It also occurs in mid-summer in the Northern Hemisphere when the sky is clearest.

The exact peak will be around 9:00 a.m. Miami time this Friday, August 12, but according to the American Meteor Society, this isn’t the best time to see the expected shower. However, it may present a difficult problem to assess this year.

“Unfortunately, the grandeur of this year’s Perseid meteor shower will be the worst-case scenario for observers,” said astronomer Bill Cook, director of the Meteorite Environment Office at NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center. Pot.

“Most of us in North America typically see 50 or 60 meteors an hour,” he said. “But this year, during normal periods, the full moon will bring it to a maximum of 10 or 20 hours,” Cook warned.

NASA commented that the Moon is “much brighter than anything in the night sky, blurring out all but the brightest Perseids-like meteors passing through our atmosphere and burning up.”
