August’s full moon may outshine Perseid meteor shower this year

The Perseid meteor shower, one of the most anticipated and popular night-sky shows of the year, is likely to be upstaged by August’s full moon.

The Perseids are one of the strongest meteor showers occurring annually between July 14 and Sept. 1. This year, the meteor shower will peak on Aug. 12 and 13, which just so happens to conflict with the full moon, whose bright light will make it difficult to see the meteors shooting across the night sky.
