Perseid meteor shower lights up the night sky
Stargazers able to wish upon a myriad of shooting stars
* Stargazers were given a treat on Saturday night and in the early hours of Sunday as the Perseid meteor shower dazzled the sky. Meteors are small fragments of interplanetary debris and dust that enter the Earth’s atmosphere at such a high speed that they usually burn up, producing the shooting stream of light. The Perseid meteor shower, one of the best-known of the meteor showers, is active from mid July until 24 August but its peak was expected to be this weekend, particularly Saturday night and in the pre-dawn hours of Sunday. One of those who stayed up was Twitter user John-GM7PBB who lives on the Isle of Lewis in Scotland. He told Sky News that he had set his camera up at about 11pm on Saturday and was rewarded with two beautiful images of a meteor above the horizon. His window of opportunity was short, however, as just a few hours later he said the stars had been “clouded out”. Twitter astronomer said that reports of meteor viewings had come thick and fast as soon as the clouds had cleared after dark. He told Sky News: “This is very rare as there is usually a build up, but the shower started with a bang. “You could feel the excitement build as many people from across the UK started to see bright meteors and fireballs early on in the evening.” Image:One of the meteors seen over the Isle of Lewis. Pic: Even in London, which usually loses out due to high levels of light pollution, there was still a good number of meteors to be seen. VirtualAstro said that, within a few hours of darkness, thousands of people from across the British Isles were watching the meteor shower, with many seeing “several incredibly bright meteors per hour, along with tens of smaller fainter meteors”. “Usually in the UK we are either clouded out or suffer the ill effects of the Moon on meteor showers, and they usually end in disappointment,” he said. “The Perseids in 2017 have been the opposite: performing as soon as it got dark and giving many their first glimpse of a meteor with ease. “People were so pleased and excited, the mentions in my Twitter feed became unreadable due to the sheer volume of tweets coming in from very happy stargazers.” Image:A meteor streaks past stars above the Jill Windmill in Brighton Robin Scagell, vice president of the Society for Popular Astronomy, said: “The Perseids can be very bright and often quite spectacular. “Some meteor showers are slow, but we are moving into the Perseid stream so they are coming at us quite swiftly. “You could see none at all for a few minutes and then two or three. “You might be lucky or unlucky; that’s the way with meteors.” If you missed out on the meteor-spotting fun, there is still a chance over the next few nights, or there is the next noteworthy meteor shower in December – the Geminid Meteor Shower. In the US, the meteor shower is being seen as an opening act for the first solar eclipse to cross that country in 99 years, which is expected on 21 August.

* The world was treated to a dazzling solar display on Friday night – as the Perseids meteor shower geared up for its weekend peak. Streaks of shooting stars – up to 100 an hour – are expected on Saturday and Sunday night in the most popular annual solar performance. The skies of Bosnia and Herzegovina were pictured filled with bright fireballs. Image:The Perseids occur every year in August Image:They are best viewed between 11pm and 3am Distinctive for their long “wakes” of light and colour streaking behind, the Perseids occur every August because of the warm summer weather. That makes them easily viewable for most sky-watchers, who will get the best display between 11pm and 3am in the Northern Hemisphere. For the best view, stargazers should find an area well away from city or street lights, which cause light pollution and diminish visibility. NASA advises it takes 30 minutes looking into the dark night’s sky for people’s eyes to adjust to see fainter objects. Image:The Perseids at peak over Spain in 2013 Image:Perseids are distinct for their long, colourful ‘wakes’ With the Saturday night weather forecast showing largely clear and dry spells, many in the UK may be lucky enough to marvel at the meteor shower. Meteor showers occur when the Earth orbits the sun, passing through the debris left by comet trails formed of broken asteroids. When the space rock collides with Earth’s atmosphere, fiery and colourful streaks are created in the sky.

What is the Perseid meteor shower? The Perseid meteors are associated with the comet Swift-Tuttle. As the comet comes close to the sun, it starts to melt, and it leaves a trail of rocks and other debris behind. As the Earth passes through this trail, there is increased meteor activity as the rocks left behind by the comet hit the atmosphere. Links can be found below.

2014 Ontario fireball: On 4 May 2014 around 4:17pm a daylight bolide occurred near Ontario. The meteoroid was estimated to be roughly 50–100 centimetres in diameter. The air burst was estimated to be equivalent to approximately 10–20 tons of TNT. The meteor was first seen in Peterborough and traveled on a southwest-to-northeast trajectory. A meteor of this size impacts Earth about twice a week. The meteor was large enough that it may have generated meteorites. A strewn field has not yet been located but would be downstream after dark flight. Weather radar returns suggest that the meteorite may have landed near Codrington.
