Perseid Meteor Shower Returns to Dazzle the Sky

August 9, 2013

This weekend marks the return of the Perseid meteor shower. The annual meteor shower will be most visible late Sunday through early Monday, provided that the predicted thunderstorms hold off a bit longer. This year the annual meteor shower is predicted to be stronger than previous years. Expect to see a higher number of shooting stars, say about 90 each hour at peak, according to the Observer’s Handbook 2013, by the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada. (WaPo)
