The Perseids: The Best Meteor Shower to View with Kids
It's that time of the summer again! Each August Earth passes through a field of debris that causes what we call the Perseid meteor shower. This is one of the best to try and experience with children as the weather is generally more pleasant for stargazing.
In 2016, the peak viewing nights for the shower are August 11th and 12th, with the potential of up to 200 meteors per hour!
