Perseids Meteor Shower | August 11 | Virtual
August 11 @ 9:00 pm - 10:00 pmFree
Every year in early August, the Earth passes through the debris left by Comet 109P/Swift-Tuttle, which creates the Perseid meteor shower. Join Lowell Observatory at 9pm AZ/PT on Wednesday, August 11, 2020, for a live stream of the Perseid meteor shower, hosted by research assistant Megan Gialluca. We’ll use the All-Sky Camera at the Lowell Discovery Telescope to hunt for meteors together. After that, you’ll be ready to find more on your own, when the meteor showers peak in the hours before dawn.
