Perseid Meteor Shower – Perseids 2018

Perseid Meteor Shower 2018

The Perseids – Perseid Meteor Shower 2018 is visible late July and through August. Maximum Perseid meteor activity is on and around 11/12/13 August. The Perseids are one of the most prolific and best-known meteor showers.

In 2018 there is no Moon present during the peak of the meteor shower. Consequently even more meteors will be visible due to dark skies! We will have perfect viewing conditions compared to other years if skies stay clear. Don’t miss natures firework display!

Prepare yourself for this coming cosmic spectacle and how to enjoy your #meteorwatch.
