Great Conditions For The Perseid Meteor Shower This Weekend!

 

Say it with us: “Purse-y-id.”

 

They yearly Perseid meteor shower is scheduled to light up the sky this weekend!

 

 

The conditions are great…

 

– (almost) a New Moon.
– WARM nights
– Summer = Kids don’t have to wake up early

 

In Canada, we should be able to see 60-70 meteors per hour!

Tips For Viewing

– The shower should be visible from Saturday night to Monday morning…but Sunday night will be the peak viewing time.

– You may see some meteors right at sundown (around 9:30)…but the show really picks up steam between 3-5am.

– The best place to be is somewhere outside of the city, where there isn’t too much light pollution.
