  • Perseid meteor shower comet hit earth dinosaurs

According to NASA, 60 to 70 meteors will be visible each hour.

"This year the moon is young and will not obstruct the vision, so we will be able to see 100 "shooting stars" an hour", Muhamed Muminovic, a member of the Sarajevo Orion astrological society, told Reuters.

Associate Teaching Professor of Physics and Astronomy at UOIT Dr. Rupinder Brar says the annual Perseid meteor shower will be visible Saturday night, early Sunday morning and Sunday night.

The phenomenon, known as the Perseids, occurs in August every year, when the earth moves through the solar orbit of the Swift-Tuttle comet.

"The moonless sky this year means the viewing will be excellent, and the shower's predicted peak is timed especially well for North America", Diana Hannikainen, Sky & Telescope magazine's observing editor, said in a statement. NASA recommends heading out to see the show during predawn hours, but meteor streaks may appear as early as 10 pm; see an updated list of activity here.

The couple, originally from Slovenia, were long-time green card holders in the U.S. "But they're saying something different. America does not need to become great again, she will only become greater by being more of what she already is".

"Every year in August, we sort of sweep through the leftovers of that comet and the tiny little particles that it left behind enter into the Earth's atmosphere", explains Brar.

STARGAZERS across the region are eagerly anticipating the arrival of the Perseid meteor shower, which will be at its best this weekend. Others are brighter and can appear to sail across our sky for several seconds, leaving a glowing smoke trail.

If you pay a visit to the Meteor Watch Facebook page you can set a reminder ahead of the stream to get a notification once it goes live. There is also a parade of planets visible!

And it's expected to be the last time that this specific meteor will be seen until 2026.

"Meteor showers take their name from the location of the radiant".
