Perseid Meteor Shower to put on show over South Florida
08 Août, 2018, 18:23 | Auteur: Therese Cote
The meteor shower is already happening nightly and has been since July 17. The best views will come before dawn on the 13th, Astronomy magazine predicts. During outburst years (such as in 2016) the rate can be between 150-200 meteors an hour. We've talked about the Perseid's before, so why am I talking about them again? The moon will be at a crescent, which means more darkness to see more meteors. The Perseids are rich in fireball meteors that are very bright and often leave a trail across the sky that will last for a second or two.
The best time to observe any meteor shower is after midnight (or after 1 a.m. if you're on daylight time), because then you are on the leading edge of the earth in its orbit around the sun and it sweeps up more meteor - just like bugs on your windshield on a freeway.
The Perseid shower is the most popular meteor shower every year.
The particles, many no bigger than a grain of sand or a pea, blast across the sky at some 132,000 miles per hour and disintegrate high up in our atmosphere after making a brilliant flash of light. However, the meteors can appear anywhere in the sky. It's just to the left of the Pleiades, the Seven Sisters constellation.
