Look up tonight for this year’s Perseid meteor shower peak, one of Earth’s most spectacular shows.
Every year around Aug. 12 the earth passes through a giant dust cloud in space that causes the Perseid meteor shower.
The best chance of seeing shooting stars will be from any dark place outside the city. Even in bright moonlight, the views should still be spectacular.
Viewers can expect an average of about 60 meteors per hour, possibly as high as 100-150 meteors per hour.
For Brampton, drive to the outskirts for the best view. Anywhere North of Mayfield Rd is a good option for star-gazing.
