“Best Meteor Shower of the Year” Peaks Tonight
The Perseid meteor shower is upon us, peaking this week, and it will fill the night sky with streaks of light and color until August 24th.
Known as the “best meteor shower of the year” by NASA because of its fast, bright and plentiful meteors that can be easily viewed outside during the warm summer months, the shower is not one to be missed.
It will peak around this evening, where up to 100 meteors an hour can be caught shooting across the sky at 37 miles per second, leaving long streaks in their wake.
