Meteor Shower August 2009 Pictures Meteor Shower Photos

Posted by celebrityphotosnews on August 12, 2009

As the time draws closer for best viewing of the meteor shower, activity is picking up. The Perseids began in mid-July, with one or two meteors racing through the night sky. According to http://www.space.com , “The Perseids regularly produce 50 to 150 meteors per hour — more than 1 per minute — under dark skies. This year’s peak hourly rate is expected to be on the low end of the range, likely around 50.”

There is one light you cannot escape on August 12th. The 55% gibbous Moon will glare down from the constellation Aries just next door to the shower’s radiant in Perseus. The Moon is beautiful, but don’t stare at it. Bright moonlight ruins night vision and it will wipe out any faint Perseids in that part of the sky.
