  • Perseids 2019: Best Places in America to Watch Meteor Shower

It's best to get away from the city lights and while you can see them any time after sunset the best time is from 3-5 am.

"Try to stay off your phone too, as looking at devices with bright screens will negatively affect your night vision and hence reduce the number of meteors you see". The Perseids and Alpha Capricornids are now active, and early this week, a fireball meteor was visible streaking across the night sky over New England. These meteors will be most visible to the Northern Hemisphere (unless you have super good eyesight, in which case, good for you). The Perseids are known for producing abnormally bright meteors with a fire ball effect.

"You'll have a better chance to see meteors when the moon is low in the west, or the brief period after it sets", NASA said.

This year, however, meteorologists warn that because there is also a full moon next week, its light will interfere with the visibility of the shower, making activity seem reduced from previous years. If you're absolutely not a morning person, you can still head out late in the evening and look for fireballs.

Everyone is invited to the Saturday, Aug. 10 meeting of the Davis Astronomy Club at Explorit Science Center (3141 Fifth St.in Davis) starting at 7:30 p.m. First, the moon will be almost full so bright moonlight will make it harder to see anything.

At center of slow-play criticism, DeChambeau sounds off
Four-time major victor Brooks Koepka was among those criticising DeChambeau. "I should have just said something to him in person". But the 25-year-old American defended himself after the third round of the Northern Trust in Jersey City, New Jersey.

Le PIB se replie de 0,2% avant le Brexit
Les services ont, pour leur part, à peine augmenté leur cadence: + 0,1 %, leur plus faible hausse depuis trois ans. Du côté de la construction, le recul est de 1,4% par rapport au trimestre précédent.

Where do the Perseids come from? .

Named for its first two discoverers, Comet Swift-Tuttle then sped back out into space. If they get close enough to be attracted by Earth's gravity, they enter the upper atmosphere at high speeds, where they vaporize due to friction with air molecules. But we won't have to worry about Swift-Tuttle hitting Earth. Best of luck catching sight of those shooting stars!

One astronomical event dominates all others this week.

But do not worry if you can not find the shower's namesake radiant - the Perseids will fly in all directions.
