This week, whenever you get a chance, look up at the night sky -you will be treated to celestial fireworks, thanks to the Perseid meteor shower.
"It peaks Monday but you still have a few more days to look in all directions", according to CBS 2 meteorologist Robb Ellis. There could be some patchy fog, the rest will see mostly clear skies. Otherwise, clouds will start clearing for the night, and the Perseid Meteor Shower will be visible again overnight. It is the largest object known to pass by Earth repeatedly. Monday is the final evening of the peak nights for viewing the annual Perseid shower.
But for a layperson, a strong meteor shower is just a pretty sight.
Watching the shower doesn't require any special equipment, but viewers should stay find a spot away from artificial light, and NASA recommends allowing about 30 minutes without light-including your smartphone!-for your eyes to adjust to the dark. The smallest particles, the size of a grain of sand, burn up in earth's atmosphere, forming a star rain. When many of them enter the atmosphere in a short time, you can witness a shower of meteors. They are the Perseids, occurring this month and the Geminids that take place in December.
