The Perseids Meteor Shower Is Peaking This Week

One of the most popular meteor showers for stargazers is going to put on a show this week.

The Perseids, known for its bright, long-lasting rays of light and large "fireballs," is typically active from July 14 to August 24. This week, however, is peak viewing. To be exact, tomorrow and Wednesday will be when the most action happens.

The setback may be that the moon’s position may make it harder to see the meteors.

The Perseid meteors are small specks of ice and dust that come from the tail of Comet Swift-Tuttle.
