One of the Brightest Meteor Showers Peaking Thursday

Perseid_meteor_and_Milky_Way_in_2009Stargazers in Croatia, particularly in spots outside the main centres, will get the chance to catch one of the brightest and most visible meteor showers over the next two early mornings…

The impressive Perseid meteor shower display, known is Croatia as “Tears of St. Lawrence”, is considered to be one of the most spectacular celestial displays. With visibility clearer in less polluted areas, Croats outside of the main cities will have the best views as the annual meteor shower peaks on early Thursday morning.

The Perseid meteor shower has been visible every year since at least 2,000 years ago. NASA predicted around 100 meteors per hour last fell during the peak night last year, with some reaching over 60 km/s.
