The 2010 Perseid meteor shower – August’s famous ’shooting stars’ – will peak on the mornings of August 12 and 13 in the morning hours after midnight. 2010 is a great year for the Perseids. This year, the slender waxing crescent moon will set at early evening, leaving a dark sky for this year’s Perseid show, often peaking at 50 or more meteors per hour.
