The Perseid meteor shower will peak between midnight on August 12 and the early hours of August 13, 2023.
The Perseids are caused by the debris left behind by the comet Swift-Tuttle.
The Perseids are known for their bright meteors and their high rates of activity.
On a dark, clear night, you can see up to 100 meteors per hour during the peak of the shower.
The Perseids are also a good opportunity to see fireballs, which are very bright meteors that can sometimes leave persistent trails in the sky.
The best time to view the Perseids is after midnight, when the radiant point (the point in the sky where the meteors appear to originate) is high in the sky.
The Perseids are a reminder of the importance of science and astronomy.
The Perseids are a reminder of the beauty and danger of nature.
