8/10/2017 1:43:28 PM


The Perseid Meteor shower peaks tomorrow and Saturday nights, but the weather isn't looking great for stargazing. Every year people from all over flock to the Dark Sly viewing area to catch a glimpse of, or get some great photos of the meteor shower. At its best, the shower can produce more than 50 meteors per hour. Astrophotographer Joe Gilker explains this annual phenomenon:


It gets it's name because it looks like the meteors appear from the constellation Perseus. Joe says he's never gotten a great look at the meteor shower from the Dark Sky Viewing area and once again environment Canada is clouds and showers.
