Space Events

Perseid Meteor Shower

Every summer, from July 14 to Aug. 24, the Northern Hemisphere is blanketed with a gleaming barrage of “shooting stars,” or meteors, tiny bits of space rock and dust that burn up in Earth’s atmosphere. The Perseid meteor shower is one of the most famous meteor showers, as the night sky lights up with burning meteors when Earth passes through the dusty remnants left behind by the comet Swift-Tuttle.
