Post Be alert for Perseid fireballs
Be alert for Perseid fireballs
Earth is entering a stream of debris from giant Comet Swift-Tuttle, source of the annual Perseid meteor shower.
Forecasters say the shower won't peak until Aug. 12-13, but already NASA cameras are catching Perseid fireballs streaking over the USA.
The Perseids produce more fireballs than any other annual shower--largely due to the size of the parent comet--so your chances of seeing one are good.

The Perseid meteor shower is peaking now
The Perseid meteor shower is peaking as Earth moves through the debris trail of parent Comet Swift Tuttle.
Last night (Aug. 11-12), NASA meteor cameras recorded more than 76 Perseid fireballs over the USA, with an even greater number expected tonight (Aug. 12-13).
