Stay Up for the Perseid Meteor Shower

This year's Perseid Meteor Shower is predicted to be the especially bright! Pair skygazing this week with hands-on student science experiments that help bring the night sky into focus.

Stay Up for the Perseid Meteor Shower

Looking Up

People with clear skies overhead may see up to 200 meteors an hour during the peak of this year's Perseid Meteor Shower. That's nearly double the average rate of meteors per hour during the annual meteor shower, making this year's nighttime show especially worth staying up to see.
