Spectacle in the Sky: The biggest meteor shower of the year happens over the weekend

Published on

One of the most exciting events of the year, the Perseid Meteor Shower, is set to peak in view this weekend, with a spectacular view early Saturday (the 12th). This view can be seen mainly in the northern and northeastern regions.

Why the name Perseids? The Perseids meteorite is named after the Greek hero Perseus, as the rocks and particles are believed to come from the constellation named after the hero.

This phenomenon brings great expectations due to the estimated number of around 100 bright stars per hour, which is easy to imagine. For those who want to seize the moment and catch up on the meteor shower, check out the key information below.

The best view of the Perseid meteor shower is on the night of August 12 to 13, according to Beatriz García, an astrophysicist and researcher at Argentina’s National Council for Scientific and Technical Research (Conicet), according to National Geographic. In Brazil, viewing of the Perseid meteor shower is favorable from 22 hours and 23:45 hours.

How do you see the Pershawi meteor shower?
The recommendation to take advantage of this phenomenon in the sky is to look for a place with little lighting and avoid places with obstacles or buildings. In addition, the lights of a cell phone and other devices can also interfere with viewing. This time, unlike in 2022, the moon will not be a problem watching the meteor shower, as the satellite will be in the waning half-phase.
