The Perseid meteor shower has actually shown up when more, with the night sky being lit by spotting lights formed from remaining comets.The meteor shower arrives every August and is a major part of the huge calendar, because the Perseids are amongst the best and most visible of the years meteor showers.It takes place when the Earth moves through the trail left behind by the comet Swift-Tuttle. As Earth clashes with that debris, it triggers into light, and those lights can be seen spotting across the sky.It gets its name from the constellation Perseus, from which those shooting stars appear to be ejected. (That is referred to as the “radiant”.)The shower is possibly visible for a long time: in between 16 July and 13 August. There are better and even worse times to see it throughout that period.The peak of the shower falls on the night of 12 and 13 August, with the stringent peak coming prior to dawn on Friday morning. That is the best night– and finest time– to see the showers.The finest time to go out on that night or any other is not determined by the meteors themselves, but rather the night sky that works as their background. The objective is to make sure that the sky is as clear and dark as possible, instead of that the Perseids are as bright as possible, considering that they are more dependable.For many people, that the majority of extreme time of darkness will come in between midnight and 5am. That will ensure both that the sky is dark and that the target is as high up in the sky as possible.But it is still worth examining if you are not able to make those times. In the UK, the Perseids are constantly above the horizon; from the time the Sun sets, you might be able to see something, though obviously it might be harder, the lighter the sky is.And similarly, if you do miss the optimum peak over the night of 12 and 13 August, do not worry. It is still visible for some days either side of that, though the meteors will naturally be harder to see the further away from that date.It might well be that the peak of the shower is not the finest time to see, because of the weather or problems. It deserves examining that whichever night you pick will not be warm adequate and the sky will be clear enough; clouds can obscure the view entirely, and a cold night might destroy it all anyway.
