The Perseids meteor shower is scheduled to peak on the morning of Saturday, August 13, 2011. However, a full Moon that night will put a damper on observing. It might be prudent to catch them earlier in the month.
Written by: William Atkins | Published in: SpaceAstronomers are predicting over 50 meteor per hour should be seen at the peak of the Geminid meteor shower; that's just under 1 meteor per minute. So, with a clear sky and good weather conditions you should have a good time watching the Geminids overhead.
