The Perseid Meteor Shower began on July 25th but its peak will be tonight. Summer weather makes it a nice night to look up at the Capital Region sky and see tons of shooting stars. I say you grab a blanket and your sweetheart, find a cozy place on the grass away from city lights and watch the show. Conditions should be perfect to experience the wonder of the meteor shower.
2020 has been good for one thing and that is the spectacular views in the night sky. There is a meteor shower that will happen this Sunday night that we could possibly see up to one hundred shooting stars. Here's how to watch.
Of course most everyone knows that "shooting stars" are really just meteors flying across the night sky but we also know that seeing one is rare. Not tonight. Tonight will be one of the best chances to see what is being called the best Perseids shower in a very long time. In fact there will be nearly double the amount as in a usual shower. There should be about 200 meteors per hour!
