Perseids 2011

Perseids radiant

The Perseids are one of the most exciting meteor showers; producing fast-moving shooting stars throughout July and August. Based on IMO observations from recent years, we expect a peak of roughly 100 meteors per hour to occur in the night of August 12-13. Unfortunately, the vast majority of these meteors will not be visible due to the bright light of the full moon which also occurs on August 13.

Nevertheless, we encourage visual observations to be made according to the standard procedure and submitted through the online report form. Such observations will automatically be included in the ZHR activity graph below.
