Perseid Meteor Shower Peaks on Friday

The celestial show will also be coupled with the International Space Station gliding over U.S. cities.

NASA explains that debris falling from comet Swift-Tuttle, which orbits the sun once every 133 years, is hitting the top of the earth’s atmosphere at 140,000mph which creates the meteor shower. These disintegrating meteors stream out of the constellation Perseus — hence the name “Perseids”.

The Perseid meteor can be best viewed during the hours before dawn especially on Saturday morning, August 13th. However, the shower can occur anytime between 10pm and sunrise.

The Perseid meteor shower is one of the regular meteor showers which occur in August every year. It has been a summer sky feature for the last 12 centuries. It was the first meteor shower to be identified with a comet.
