The Lyrid Meteor Shower, observed for more than 2,000 years when the planet makes its annual passage through the dust stream of long-period Comet Thatcher. A grain of that comet's dust is swept up in this image from the early hours of April 21, 2015, the meteor's brilliant streak crosses the central region of the Milky Way. Its trail points back toward the constellation Lyra. The yellowish hue of giant star Antares shines to the above of the Milky Way's bulge. At the top is bright planet…

Aug. 13 2015 Moonless Meteors and the Milky Way  Image Credit & Copyright: Petr Horálek Explanation: Have you watched the Perseid meteor shower? Though the annual shower's predicted peak was last night, meteor activity should continue tonight (August 13/14), best enjoyed by just looking up in clear, dark skies after midnight. Of course, this year's Perseid shower has the advantage of being active near the August 14 New Moon. Since the nearly New Moon doesn't rise before the morning twilight…

Major celestial events of 2017:     Aug. 12‐13: Perseid meteor shower Produced from the debris of the comet Swift‐Tuttle — first observed in 1862 — the Perseids are one of the best meteor showers largely due to its intensity, which reaches up to 60 meteors per hour at its peak. The shower is observed annually from July 17 to Aug. 24 but the intensity is at its highest on the night of Aug. 12 and the morning of Aug. 13.
