Perseid Meteor Shower

Did you miss the Perseid meteor shower event?

The Perseids are a prolific meteor shower associated with the comet Swift–Tuttle. The Perseids are so-called because the point from which they appear to come called the radiant lies in the constellation Perseus.
The name derives in part from the word Perseides, a term found in Greek mythology referring to the sons of Perseus.

If you were able to watch it on the first night, which is August 12, 2016, then you are lucky enough! To those people who haven’t seen it, no worries, we have the best shots of the Perseid meteor shower!

I don’t mean to alarm you, but space is happening right now.

The Perseid meteor shower occurs every August as the planet Earth drifts through the remains of an ancient comet. As those small bits of rock and ice hit our atmosphere, they heat up until they glow, hurtling through the sky as meteors.

This year, on the evenings of August 11 and 12, we’ll be closer than ever to those comet remains. And the view is spectacular.
