Perseid meteor shower to peak, shining fireballs to streak through skies

Perseid comes from comet 109P/Swift-Tuttle that orbits around the Sun once every 133 years.

It is named after Lewis Swift and Horace Tuttle, who first spotted it in 1862

Perseids occur every year in the month of August

The final supermoon of the year will be visible on Thursday, and the Perseid annual meteor shower will peak through the nights of August 11 to August 13

Stargazers around the world are in for two major celestial events.

As Earth blocks the little space debris from the comet Swift-Tuttle, meteors rip across the sky.
