Depending on where you're located, it will likely be easier to see one shower versus the other. Stargazers are also advised to settle in an area where the entire dome of the sky is visible and, most importantly, to be patient.

These meteors are called the Perseids because the point from which they appear to hail (called the radiant) lies in the constellation Perseus.

Trump claims African-Americans love his Baltimore comments despite negative polls
Elijah Cummings , who is black, and said of Cummings' mostly-black constituents, "Those people are living in hell in Baltimore". Sharpton also posted an old photo of two saying that Trump was "telling James Brown and Jesse Jackson why he respects my work".


Where Does The Perseid Meteor Shower Come From? NASA scientists, who have nicknamed the Perseids "fireball champions", believe that the shiny meteors are a result of Swift-Tuttle's large, 26 km wide, nucleus.

Meteors are created when fragments break off of comets or asteroids. When entering the Earth's atmosphere these fragments are strongly heated by friction and burn, which is accompanied by the attractive effect of "falling stars", during which it is customary to make a wish. In most instances, space rocks are debris left behind in a comet's orbit. "This comet debris gets strewn out along the comet's path, especially in the inner solar system (where we live) as the sun's heat boils off more and more ice and debris". You can either camp out in the wild away from the city lights, or enjoy it from the comfort of your backyard. Lying on your back and looking up maximizes the amount of sky within the range of your vision. Paired with the Delta Aquariid this week, those few meteors should help light up parts of the sky. That's because it will take their eyes between 10 to 15 minutes to get accustomed to the dark skies and then as long, or even longer, to see a flashing meteor.
