Perseid Meteor Shower In August 2017
The 2017 Perseid Meteor Shower is visible for about two weeks before and after its peak which occurs during the early morning hours of August 12.
“This year, we are expecting enhanced rates of about 150 per hour or so, but the increased number will be canceled out by the bright Moon, the light of which will wash out the fainter Perseids,” said Bill Cooke of NASA’s Meteoroid Environment Office.
