For those of you who have have missed the Perseid meteor shower a few days ago, don't worry!
According to the International Meteor Organisation (IMO), the shower, which usually starts from July 24, will last until
around Aug 17.a
Universiti Sains Malaysia Atmospheric Science Unit lecturer Assoc Prof Dr Chong Hon Yew said that the peak of the Perseid meteor shower in the early hours this morning can catch the shower again after midnight tomorrow.
The meteor shower would be at
its best between 1.30am and 4am in the northern sky with more than 100
Perseids streaking across the sky per hour.
Dr Chong also said the Perseids are a prolific meteor shower associated with the comet Swift-Tuttle, are usually fast, bright and occasionally leave persistent trains.
“They are called thus because the point they come from lies in the constellation Perseus,” he said.
The shower is visible from mid-July each year, with the greatest activity between Aug 8 and 14, peaking around Aug 12.
Dr Chong said the meteor shower can be observed with the naked eye.
