The Perseid meteor shower is going to be incredible this weekend

At peak time under good conditions, you can expect to see 60 to 70 meteors per hour.

This weekend will be the best time to view the event with its maximum peak on Sunday night and Monday morning.

The Perseids meteor shower is basically a mass of shooting stars, which light up the skies for avid stargazers below each year. That was most likely the Perseids.

If you're planning on watching the Perseid meteor shower, bear in mind that it will take at least 30 minutes for your eyes to adjust to the darkness. It's a rich meteor shower, and it's steady. There are some occasional bursts of higher meteor activity, the next one being predicted in 2028.

"Preparations have been finalised where visitors can lay back and relax to watch the complete Perseid Meteor Shower from our desert Majlis setting, without the need or use of any special equipment or telescopes, though visitors are free to choose whether or not to bring one", said Alsuwaidi. They were there, you just couldn't see them then.

The shower runs from July 17 to August 24, however, it peaks from 4 pm on August 12 until 4 am on August 13 Eastern Daylight Time. But don't go longer than that, otherwise you'll pick up the rotation of the stars, which could block out streaks from shooting stars, Cooke said. The longer you're outside in the dark, the better your vision of the meteors will be.

The meteors will appear to come from the direction of the Perseus constellation in the north-eastern part of the sky, although they should be visible from any point.

That is the million-dollar question of course. "New Moon occurs on the 11th so it will not wash out the sky with its brilliance like other years". If you're south of Brisbane don't worry, you can still view the event on a clear night, try head away from the city lights into a darker area.

Part of the reason the Perseids really sizzle in the summer sky in the northern hemisphere isn't the seasonal heat, but rather their speed, which can be almost 60 kilometers per second (134,000 miles per hour).

The annual Perseid shower occurs when the Earth's orbit crosses the path of debris thrown off by Comet Swift-Tuttle. "The average particle size is that of large sand grain but some small pea gravel-size meteors can cause bright fireballs that light up the sky and ground", he continued.
