The annual Perseid meteor shower is approaching its peak, and you can enjoy the event live online. 

The 2022 Perseid meteor shower is expected to peak between Aug. 11 and 12. However, the bright moonlight from August’s full Sturgeon Moon on Aug. 11 will complicate viewing the meteor shower’s peak, which is why the Virtual Telescope Project is hosting a live webcast on Aug. 9, before the moon reaches peak brightness. 

“Because of the full moon on the night of their peak, we will run this live feed two days earlier, so our satellite will be below the horizon, with still a very good number of meteors!” Gianluca Masi of the Virtual Telescope Project wrote
