This week brings us sunshine, moderate temperatures – and the Perseid meteor shower. Here is the right time to see it.



This will be a good week for sunbursts and star guns.

The dry, warm weather on Monday should continue throughout the week, with highs in the mid to upper 70s, said Carly Kovachik, a meteorologist at the National Weather Service in Seattle

and though the sky is unlikely it will be perfect cloudless throughout the week, she said, looking clear enough on Wednesday and Thursday mornings to make it worth it to get up early to look at this year's Perseid meteor showers.

The annual meteor shower reached its highest Tuesday morning, but will still be visible and worth watching for the rest of the week.

Because the moon is almost full and so bright in the sky most of the night, astronomers recommend getting up at least an hour before dawn for the best opportunity to view the spectacle.

According to the American Meteorological Society, the Perseids are the most popular meteor show because they peak during the warm August nights in the Northern Hemisphere.

Spaceweather.com recommends waking "early ̵

1; very early – about an hour before sunrise, when the moon is low and the radiant soul is high in the sky. Forecasters expect tens of perseids an hour to drive through the short-dark preceding sky. "

The sun rises in Seattle shortly after 6am this week. Tomorrow the moon goes down at 16:59
