This year’s summer meteor shower happens along with a full moon, so it seems the meteors in the sky will be almost impossible to see with bare eyes. However, for getting the best viewing is by leaving from city lights to a dark spot and adjusting your eyes to look at the north sky for about 20 minutes. The meteors which may appear in the sky will can be seen.
According to Discover Magazine, the moon’s light will also wash out fainter stars in the sky. A full moon will shine all night tonight into Saturday and the constellation Perseus — from which the meteors appear to radiate — will be at the highest position in the northeast sky.
The constellation which is named for Greek hero Perseus, lies beneath the constellation Cassiopeia, which many people recognize as a big “W” of five fairly bright stars. The Perseids, which are bright, fast and sometimes can flare into fireballs, can number as high as 100 per hour when the moon doesn’t get in the way. The meteor shower is the result of Earth moving through debris which is left by the passage of the Comet Swift-Tuttle in its 130-year orbit of the sun.
