Recommendations: August 10-13, 2013 before dawn, the Perseids
The Perseid meteor shower is perhaps the brightest and most beautiful meteor shower of the year, but best seen in the Northern Hemisphere.
In the Philippines, we will also be able to see this beautiful meteor shower granted that there are no low pressure areas looming over our heads and that we are in a place with less light pollution. We also do not have to wait for the peak days of the Perseids for we will be able to witness them as early as 2 weeks before then it will gradually increase.
“In 2013, the Perseid meteors will streak across the short summer nights – August 10-13 – from late night until dawn, with little to no interference from the waxing crescent moon. Plus the moon will be near the planet Saturn in the evening hours, giving a colorful prelude to late-night Perseid show. Best mornings to look: August 11, 12 and 13.”
