Perseid Meteor Showers — August 12-13

What’s Peekskill Rocks without rocks? We don’t know… because there are more rocks coming! Space rocks, that is.

The Perseid shower often produces 50 to 100 meteors per hour in a dark sky at the peak. And we should be able to see it from Peekskill, but hopefully we won’t have to play dodge ball with them.
Rocks
Since the moon is waning right now, we should have a great viewing opportunity, providing clouds don’t get in the way. The best times that I’ve been able to extrapolate from various souces is about 2:00 am, Thursday morning and after 8:45 pm Thursday night. Look to the constellation Perseus in the Northeast.

In general, the Perseid meteors tend to be few and far between at nightfall and early evening and don’t really start to pick up steam until after midnight. For you night owls, the usually don’t bombard the sky in force until just before dawn. Think 2:00 – 4:00 am.

“Try to view the Perseids as far away from artificial lights as possible,” Bill Cooke of NASA wrote in a blog post. “The darker the sky, the better viewing experience you can have. Lie on the ground and look straight up.”

This site has some good information about where they can be seen.
