Egypt to witness Perseid meteor shower from Friday till Sunday

Egypt to witness Perseid meteor shower from Friday till Sunday

The Perseid meteor shower, which occurs in late summer each year as the Earth travels through the debris stream of the Swift-Tuttle comet, is projected to peak Friday evening and Saturday morning.

Those hoping to catch a glimpse of the Perseid meteor shower at its peak Friday night might want to stay indoors. The Perseid Shower is an annual occurrence from mid-July to August and amateur astronomers from the city are quite excited about it!

Guaranteed they'll have an excellent view point and the group provides telescopes.

Cooke said the show would be slightly better in the predawn hours of August 12, but that there'd be a decent show both nights.

The Perseids are known for fireballs, which are large explosions of light and color that last longer than an average meteor streak.


Hey, at least the meteoric blasts of fake news about the meteor shower has been an impressive opening act. Those in northern Australia are most likely to see a meteor or two. When the shower is at its height and most visible from Earth, it appears to originate from the constellation of Perseus, a hero in Greek mythology for killing Medusa.

At least 50 or more meteors per hour will be observed during its peak time. "At best, they outburst from a normal rate between 80-100 meteors per hour to a few hundred per hour", he says in a statement.

PAGASA pointed out that cloudy to cloudy skies except for isolated light to occasionally heavy rains, gusty winds, and lightning will be experienced over the whole country. " This is a claim astronomers would be reluctant to make, according to Bill Cooke, head of NASA's Meteoroid Environment Office at Marshall Space Flight Center".

While you can easily see a shooting star with the naked eye just looking straight up, the table below shows the exact direction of the Perseids from your location.

The best time to view the Perseids, and most other meteor showers, is when the sky is the darkest.
