This year is set to be a stellar year for the annual Perseid meteor shower. Comet Smith-Tuttle (not Buttle) is responsible.
It has something to do with Jupiter.
Jupiter’s Effect Will Make Perseid Meteor Shower One to Remember
Remember to look north-northeast towards the constellation Perseus (under the big ‘W’) on Thursday, Aug. 11 into the morning of Friday, Aug. 12.
You probably won’t regret staying up late.
