The Perseid meteor shower occurs every year from about July 23 to August 22, reaching its peak from late midnight August 11 to dawn August 13. The shower’s “maximum”—when the greatest number of meteors per hour fall—is typically in the pre-dawn hours (when it’s still dark) of August 11, 12, or 13.

The Perseid shower is named for the constellation Perseus, which is its radiant. A radiant is the point of origin of the meteor shower, so the Perseid meteors will appear to be traveling away from the constellation Perseus in the night sky. Locating Perseus might therefore help you to see as many meteors as possible.

See the Moon posing with various planets throughout the month, plus catch the peak of the annual Perseid meteor shower.
