August is one of the best times of the year to observe meteor showers. A day after full moon, we will be given a visual treat as a spectacle in the sky takes place.
State weather bureau PAGASA says the famous Perseids meteor shower, producing up to 60-100 bright, fast, and colorful meteors per hour, will be observed with its peak in the late evening and early morning hours on August 12-13, 2012.
In the Philippines, the meteor shower can be observed on August 11 starting at approximately an hour before the clock strikes 12 midnight until the predawn hours on the morning of August 12.
Around 15 bright and swift-moving meteors are expected to be seen every hour.
