The famous Perseid meteor shower will peak on Monday 12 August, though meteors have been visible for a week or so now and will remain visible for some time after the peak. The Perseids can produce over 50 meteors an hour with a large percentage of very bright shooting stars, and they’ll need to be because there’s a full moon this year. Even so, the Cabildo has put an action plan in place to ensure safety for all the cars they’re expecting in the caldera to try to view the shower. Although the Perseids actually radiate from the constellation of Perseus, they are visible all over the sky, so just look up after midnight. For a full list of the other meteor showers this year, see HERE.
