The Perseid Meteor Shower Is This Weekend!
The year's best meteor shower is this weekend!
The annual Perseid meteor shower peaks this Sunday and Monday, and there could be about 70 meteors an hour! The Perseid meteor shower gets its name from the Perseus constellation the meteorites seem to originate from.
The best time to view the shower is after midnight until dawn, but especially after the moon sets around 1 a.m.
