  • Here's Why The Perseid Meteor Shower Is 2019's Most Exceptional Meteor Shower

Often described as the best meteor shower of the year, the Perseids are officially upon us, and Miami is among a handful of northern hemisphere cities being graced with fair visibility.

Some shots were taken from views not many of us will get to see, like this video taken from the front of an aircraft, shared by a NASA aerospace engineer.

"They're best seen between 2am local time and dawn".

"The best known meteors of the year, the Perseids, are back".

The Perseids come from the direction of the constellation Perseus (hence the name), and for best viewing the advice is, as always, to stand anywhere with as limited light pollution as you can manage with your back to the moon, looking north or east. Perseid meteors pose no danger to Earth, according to NASA.

"Learn more about this year's Perseid meteor shower, set to reach its peak next Monday night". The annual meteor shower happens due to earth passing through the Comet Swift-Tuttle.

I saw several friends on Facebook talking about watching the meteor shower last night.

As the comet swings around the Sun every 133 years, bits and pieces of rock and dust break off under the Sun's intense heat.

Spaceweather.com recommends waking up "early - very early - about an hour before sunrise, when the moon is low and the shower's radiant is high in the sky".
