Perseids Meteor Shower*

Event Date: 

Wednesday, August 11, 2021 - 12:00 to Thursday, August 12, 2021 - 23:00

While the Perseids are not the strongest shower of the year (that title goes to the Geminids in December), they are the most popular because they fall on warm summer nights. Active between July 17 and August 26, 2021, the Perseids will max out the night of August 11, 2021. The moon will only be 13 percent full and will set just as the meteors start to appear, so expect to see around 50 to 75 meteors per hour on the peak night.
