The Perseid meteor shower is happening tonight between midnight to 5 a.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 12. It will be visible in most of North America.

Late Tuesday night is an option as well.


The Perseids are bits of debris from the Comet Swift-Tuttle. Every year around August the Earth passes through these debris streams.

“They are typically fast, bright and occasionally leave persistent trains,” says a Columnist. “And every once in a while, a Perseid fireball will blaze forth, bright enough to be quite spectacular and more than capable to attract attention even in bright moonlight.”

God has a show in store for tonight for those who are up or wish to stay up. Remember, to give credit where credit is due.

The best times to watch:

1. between midnight and dawn Wednesday

2. 4am-5am EST.

3. 1-2am PST

4. After daybreak in Europe.
