Eyes on the skies for Perseid meteor shower | Central – ITV News


The Perseid meteor shower is set to light up the skies and is expected to be one of the most spectacularly stunning celestial events in recent years. At its peak, between Thursday and Sunday this week, we could see a massive 200 meteors an hour. Named after the Perseus constellation, particles the size of grain of sand from the tail end of Comet Swift-Tuttle will vaporise in Earth’s atmosphere, grape size particles will produce a fireball accompanied by an afterglow, a column of ionised gas that fades from view as it loses energy.
