The Perseid Meteor Begins Its Peak TONIGHT - Don't Miss It!

The Perseid Meteor Begins Its Peak TONIGHT - Don't Miss It!

http://www.iflscience.com/space/dont-miss-annual-perseid-meteor-showers

 

It’s almost time to watch the annual spectacular Perseid meteor shower, one of the brightest meteor showers of the year.

And even NASA recommends this as a must-see: "If you see one meteor shower this year, make it August's Perseids."

The comet Swift-Tuttle travels through our Solar System every 133 years, leaving a dust trail in its wake. When Earth passes through, the dust cloud specks hit its atmosphere, causing the Perseid meteor shower, which happens annually between July 17 and August 24.

Dear NASA,

If this is a must-see event stop spraying chemtrails over my house. It's really hard to see the shower through the haze.

Sincerely,

peasant #46257

It will be perfectly clear all day and then at peak viewing time it's hazy or cloudy. What a rip off!
