This year has been the most colorful, when it comes to astronomical features.
With all the solar eclipses, and blood moon that took place the last two months, it would be a sky-watcher’s dream.
But, with the latest info that got through, there would a ton of shooting stars that would enter the earth’s atmosphere this month.
Trust me, you would not want to miss the meteor shower this weekend. It is the Perseid meteor shower, that will take place and leave you all star-struck.
According to Space.com, Perseid meteor showers are considered to be the most beautiful of them all, with 70 meteors visible per hour.
Although the dates are 11-12-13 August, the best one would be on the night of 12th August, to the dawn of 13th August.
USA would be the best place to witness this meteor shower, as it would appear over the Northern Hemisphere which would start from 10 pm, but it would start rigorously from 2 am.
You can see meteor showers from literally anywhere, and if you want to be witness to a display of the planets at different points of dawn.
Expect Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn at an interval of two hours.
The Perseid meteor shower is nothing but burning debris that falls down to the earth in a heat stricken mode, which is actually the rocks that have been left behind by the Swift-Tuttle Comet, way back in 1992.
When our planet passes through this trail, it leads a dazzling array of lights, as they pass by our atmosphere, igniting, and falling to the ground in a shower of rocks.
If you are interested, all you need is your eyes. Take a week, go off to some remote location which is far away from the hustle-bustle of city life, and you would be able to witness the entire spectacle unfurling before you.
You don’t need binoculars, or telescope, and all you need to make sure is that you have given your eyes ample time to get adjusted to the dim light, before you start seeing the stars.
