Perseid Meteor Shower 2013

“The Perseids are a prolific meteor shower associated with the comet Swift-Tuttle. The Perseids are so-called because the point from which they appear to come, called the radiant, lies in the constellation Perseus.”

“The shower is visible from mid-July each year, with the peak in activity being between 9 and 14 August, depending on the particular location of the stream. During the peak, the rate of meteors reaches 60 or more per hour. They can be seen all across the sky, but because of the path of Swift-Tuttle’s orbit, Perseids are primarily visible in the northern hemisphere.”

I didn’t get to watch the meteor shower in the sky, it’s quite cloudy last night or this early morning. But I managed to catch some in the YouTube live show.

I had screenshots of one of the meteor here:

I dunno what that Chinese words say on the 2nd picture, but it’s most probably “Hey, a meteor!”. LOL jk.

And here’s a clear one from citynews.ca:

I used to wish I have my own telescope. I’ll probably get one in the future so I can watch these kind of stuff. Well, when I can afford it.
