Comet Swift-Tuttle to show its Perseids to Earth on August 13

The Perseid meteor shower will reach its peak on August 13 overnight. According to astronomers, humans will be able to witness an impressive sight - one will be able to see up to 100 meteors per hour.

The Perseid meteor shower is the champion among well-known meteor showers on the number of unusually bright "shooting stars." The phenomenon occurs when the Earth enters the dust trail of Comet Swift-Tuttle. The comet has an orbital period of 133 years. It fits the classical definition of a Halley-type comet with a period between 20 and 200 years.
