Perseid meteor shower peaks this week: watch live stream – DW (English)

-

Once a year, between July 14 and September 1, Earth passes through the vast tail of debris left behind by comet Swift-Tuttle – which made its last approach to Earth in 1992 – peppering our planet with thousands of small space rocks no wider than a grain of sand. We call this annual event the Perseid meteor shower, or, as they are popularly known, the tears of Saint Lawrence. However, for this year’s cosmic show, which will peak on August 12-13, the iconic shooting stars are expected to be difficult to see, as the event coincides with a full moon night, too. known as the Sturgeon Moon, according to the American Meteor Society (AMS). This month’s full moon is also the last supermoon of 2022, which occurs when the Moon makes its closest approach to Earth at the same time it’s full, making it appear especially large and bright in the night sky, reports Space. .com. The Perseids are caused by Earth passing through chunks of ice and rock left behind by Comet Swift-Tuttle, which last passed close to Earth in 1992. Perseid Live Stream Plus Full Moon If you live in an urban or suburban area, light pollution could make it even more difficult to see. Can you then somehow see the Perseids? Here’s how to avoid all that to see the annual meteor shower. To watch the annual spectacle, the Virtual Telescope project is hosting a live broadcast showing a view of the meteor shower through robotic telescopes at the Bellatrix Astronomical Observatory in Italy. The free broadcast will begin at 1:30 am UTC (3:30 am CET) on August 11 and will show meteors captured by the telescopes’ wide-field cameras. It can be seen at the following link. “Due to the full moon on the night of its apogee, we will run this live broadcast two days earlier, so our satellite will be below the horizon, with a still very good number of meteors,” wrote Gianluca Masi, who manages the Virtual Telescope Project, on the project’s website.
