There will be a lot of stars next week. Most of them are expected to be visible at night from Thursday to Friday with about 69 meteors per hour.
According to Weeronline and Meteovista, the Perseids meteor shower passes Earth every August. This year, there are more meteors that can be seen than in previous years. This is because it was just the tip of the new moon. Weeronline says: Due to moonlight, faint meteors cannot be seen, but that is not the case now.

During the peak period, at night from Thursday to Friday, you can see 69 stars per hour. “This means that you can identify a bright star every minute.” On the other nights before and after, there is also a lot to see in the sky: next Wednesday and Thursday about 35 meteors will be visible.
Meteor stars are best seen between 3 and 4:30 a.m. when looking to the northeast. You don’t need binoculars, but it is important to find a dark spot. It’s also a good idea to let your eyes get used to the darkness for 15 minutes first. While you wait, it is best not to look at your smartphone. To give your eyes enough energy, make sure you eat and drink enough. Also think about warm clothes.
Aren’t you a night owl? “Don’t worry, there are plenty of stars that can be seen even late at night and early in the night,” says Weeronline.
