Spectacular Perseid meteor shower for Sky Gazers

If you are hobbyist of sky gazing - nothing could be better than this time to gaze sky and watch the most spectacular meteor shower ever in your lifetime.

Yes, what the sky gazers are experiencing these days , that is period between mid July to mid August, is spectacular. However, last night was the best when up to 60 meteors were seen in one hour skirting across the sky from the comet Swift-Tuttle and won't be seen again until 2125.

Meteors, commonly known as shooting stars, are the result of small particles entering the Earth's atmosphere at high speed. These heat the air around them, causing the characteristic streak of light seen from the ground.
