Perseid Meteors Observing in 2020

August 10, 2020

The Perseid meteor shower is perhaps one of the most-watched showers, and it is easy to understand why: It occurs every year in mid-August. Temperatures are warm, and most northern hemisphere observers are content to wander outside on a clear August evening - even braving the mosquitoes - to catch a few streaks of light as they flash across the sky from the detritus of Comet Swift-Tuttle as Earth passes through those particles. 

Here are some helpful tips on how to best observe this most-seen meteor shower in 2020.
