The Perseid meteor shower, a phenomenon producing up to 60 to 70 meteors per hour in the night's sky, peaked over the weekend.

The Perseids are so called because the point from which they appear to originate lies in the constellation Perseus. Tiny particles burn up in earth's atmosphere, resulting in and formed the "star rain".

The streaks, which reach their peak every August, were created by the debris left by the comet's previous passes, the last of which was in 1992.

We will remind, earlier it was reported that in June, the Ukrainians saw a rare stargazing booted. However, the meteor showers will technically be visible all through the month.

The meteoroids that cause this shower are dust particles that get outgassed from the comet when it comes close to the sun. When many of them enter the atmosphere in a short time, you can witness a shower of meteors. Suggest astronomers to observe star rain away from cities - at the dacha in the village or in the countryside.

Comet: A comet is a relatively small body that orbits the sun.

But the number of meteors, about one, or fewer per minute failed to dazzle in the Ramon Crater's night sky. The new moon (amavasya) phase started on August 11 and it will be easier to see each shooting star in the darkness. A meteor. While photographing the Andromeda galaxy in 2016, near the peak of the Perseid Meteor Shower, a sand-sized rock from deep space crossed right in front of our Milky Way Galaxy's far-distant companion.
