This Weekend Is The Perseid Meteor Show - Viewing Conditions Will Be Perfect

Perseid meteor shower on Qatar sky next Sunday

The group will certainly be heading out for the Perseid meteor shower. When the Earth approaches the stream of debris, the Perseid meteor shower appears.

Even if you find ideal urban viewing conditions, there are a lot of other factors that can affect whether you see meteors, including whether the sky is clear and the properties of meteors themselves.

According to Space.com, during peak hours people should see about 60-70 meteors per hour. Those tiny bits of debris, traveling at around 132,000 miles per hour, create vivid streaks of light when they collide with Earth's atmosphere.

-Focus your attention on the constellations Cassiopeia and Perseus as this is where the meteors will be shooting. But when comets come close to the heat of the Sun, their ice melts and the remaining matter (the meteoroids) is left behind in the orbit of the comet.

How to watch the Perseids Meteor Shower in India? According to NASA, the best time to watch is any time between 11 p.m. and the first light of morning, when the night is darkest.

The Swift-Tuttle comet approaches every 133 years, leaving behind a trail of debris. It can take up to 45 minutes for your eyes to adjust to the darkness so that you can best see the faint, quick streaks from the meteor shower, so be patient. That means, city dwellers, you're going to have to head out to the countryside - or at least as far away as you can from the city's bright lights - if you want a decent viewing. Make sure you have a dark area to view.

-If you plan on capturing them on camera, don't forget to lower the shutter speed!

The Virtual Telescope Project will be streaming a view of the Perseid meteor shower on Sunday from the Castel Santa Maria in Italy's Perugia province, where the community is restoring the 16th-century church that has been damaged by several earthquakes. But anytime after 10 p.m. on August 12 should be fine.
