Perseid Meteor Shower

Hello Perseid Meteor shower! Once a year the Earth passes through a trail of debris left behind by the Swift-Tuttle comet. You will be able to see bright meteors streaking across the sky ...

“Forecasters are predicting a Perseid outburst this year with double normal rates on the night of Aug. 11-12,” - NASA’s Meteoroid Environments Office “Under perfect conditions, rates could soar to 200 meteors per hour.”

Tune in at 7:00 pm PT on August 11 and 12, as NASA will broadcast a live stream of the meteor shower online.
