Perseids Meteor Shower

August 11th-13th, 2021

Thu.–Sat., Aug. 11–13, midnight–dawn

Northern night sky

With little or no moon to ruin the show, this is a great year for watching the Perseid meteor shower, considered one of the best showers each year, and producing about 60 meteors per hour. Find a dark, wide-open sky and look toward the Perseus constellation.
