In the Northern Hemisphere, the annual August Perseid meteor shower is one of the most favorite meteor shower of the year.

At its peak between August 10-13, the Perseid shower will see 80 meteors an hour to over 100 meteors per hour. 

 

Look for a great and dark place in the park and enjoy the heavenly spectacle on the sky in your area. No matter how many meteors you will see, you might see something on the sky, and it might be a lot of fun for you, your friends and your family. 

 

You are also able to see the meteors in the Southern Hemisphere. At temperate latitudes in the Southern Hemisphere, the radiant of the Perseid meteor shower never gets very high in the sky. Therefore, the number of Perseid meteors seen from this part of the world isn’t as great as at more northerly latitudes. You have to look northward in the hours before dawn on August 11, 12 and 13, and you might still see a decent display of Perseid showers.
