When does the 2018 Perseid meteor shower start? Timing of viewing location of Perseid meteor shower

the romance before the Chinese New Year's Eve, the Perseid meteor shower in the early morning of August 12-13, are you ready for your advertisement? For astronomy lovers, don't miss this opportunity. For lovers in love, is it a very happy thing to watch the meteor shower together?

According to Greece's China Greece times, the most spectacular meteor shower this summer, the Perseid meteor shower, will debut this weekend (August 11-13), and is expected to peak on the evening of August 12.

According to sladagis, a Greek astrophysicist, stargazers may not be able to see 80 to 100 meteors per hour, but they can definitely see one in 1.5 to 2 minutes.

But when the sun goes down and doesn't rise within two hours after dark, it's the best time. I suggest you choose a good time to watch!

In addition, the light pollution is also a very serious influence factor. It is suggested that you go to the place where the light pollution is relatively light in the mountain area, where you can see not only meteor showers, but also the Milky way.

You don't need to think about a specific direction when enjoying the meteor shower. You can see it all day, so you don't need to carry a telescope. The visibility range of the telescope is too small to see the Perseid meteor shower at all!!

On August 12, 2017 local time, the Perseid meteor shower across the sky in Brighton, southern England.

Perseids (scientific name) is a meteor shower that takes the vicinity of Perseids as the radiant point, also known as Perseids, together with quadrant meteor shower and Gemini meteor shower, it is called the three major meteor showers in the northern hemisphere.

The cause of the Perseid meteor shower is related to comets. Comets are spheres of ice and sand. When comets approach the sun, they will sublimate the surface materials due to the heat of the sun. These sublimated materials are the meteoroids in the future. During the comet's orbit around the sun, part of the meteors will separate from the comets and remain in the orbit of comets. The meteors will move and move due to the sun's light pressure The forces of stars will continue to spread away from each other, and the range will gradually increase.
