The Russians will be able to see the most bright starfall year in August. This is the Perseid meteor shower. According to astronomers, it began in mid-July, but the peak of the phenomenon for observation in Russia will come on the night of August 12-13.

The meteor shower will be seen especially well in the Nizhny Novgorod region.

“If you go outside, you can watch in the sky for luminous meteorites, or falling “stars”. Their intensity at this time will be 100-150 celestial bodies per hour. On other days – one or two” stars “per hour”, — writes

The fall of the largest meteors will last only a few seconds, but it is they who will leave bright “tails” in the sky, which can be observed for some more time. The Perseid stream itself will last until August 24.
