Perseids Meteor Shower

The annual Perseids meteor shower has began this year and is expected to be quite brilliant this year. The cause for it being more spectacular this year is because of the gas giant Jupiter influence on the dust particles and bringing the particles closer into the path of our planet.

The Perseids gets its name from the area of the night sky in which the meteors radiant out from, they come from an area of space within the constellation of Perseus, the Greek Legendary hero who slayed Medusa and Cetus to rescue the princess Andromeda.
