The Perseids Meteor Showers Are This Weekend

The summer’s best light show should be particularly stunning this year, if the weather and wildfires cooperate. The meteors are remnants of the Swift-Tuttle comet. Sunday night and Monday morning will be the best times to watch, but there could be a significant number of meteors the night before and the night after as well.

For Bay Area residents who are willing to drive away from city lights, it could be quite a show. Experts recommend finding a location for viewing that allows you to see as much of the dome of the sky as possible, allow a few minutes to let your eyes adjust to the dark night sky, leave the telescopes and binoculars at home, dress for the weather and have patience.
