The Perseid Meteor Shower to lighten the sky for one week

Posted by : admin
Filed under : General

If you noticed a lot of people starring at the sky and  didn’t know why, then you need to know that this week is the Perseid meteor shower, which brings over 100 meteors per hour. The meteors are falling because the Earth passes through Comet Swift-Tuttle’s dust trail, according to an astronomer at Adler Planetarium, Mark Hammergren.

The peak will be today at 12:30 to 3 p.m., but it won’t be so easy to see it because of the daylight, though the meteors will keep falling for one week.

The Comet Swift-Tuttle is an iceberg made up of dust particles, rock and ice and has been discovered in 1862, but it has been in orbit for thousands of years.
