Perseid Meteor Shower to Reach its Peak on Sunday at Dawn

    The most spectacular summer shower of shooting stars, the meteor shower of Perseid, will reach its peak on Sunday at dawn, and will be visible on the sky of Greece and on the north hemisphere sky in general.

    Those who will stay awake will have the opportunity, if the weather conditions allow it, to observe the phenomenon.

    The very bright moon may be an obstacle, as it will hinder the observation of the full event and only the brighter ones will be visible.

    The Perseids are one of the most spectacular meteor shower phenomena every year because of their brightness and speed as they have long fiery “tails”.

    Despite the fact that they originate mostly from north-northeast of the constellation of Perseus they appear everywhere on the sky and not at a specific part of the sky every year.
