Perseid meteor shower 2019

 
 Time to be confirmed

The Perseid meteor shower is one of the brightest and most active meteor showers in the year. It occurs in July and August in the Northern hemisphere making it a summer shower and one of the most popular.

The peak occurs around 12-13th August.

Like everything in the night sky, the absolute best time to be looking is when the sky is darkest. This occurs around midnight and during the very earliest hours of the morning.

If the moon is visible above the horizon, its light will interfere, blotting out the fainter meteors. But luckily this year the moon will be a crescent, near to new moon, giving stargazers a fantastic dark sky.

The pre-dawn hours on both August 12th and 13th should be the best times for spotting some Perseids.
