During the summer, the largest number of “shooting stars” is observed, with the peak occurring in July. And every summer, skywatchers around the world look forward to seeing Perseid meteors, the “Old Faithfuls” of the annual meteor displays. However, most viewers will miss the six relatively small meteor showers that peak between July 26 and August 21 (three in July and three in August).

Unfortunately, this year’s almost full moon will seriously interfere with the observation of the Perseids. So why not take this opportunity to see the other six enjoying the dark, moonless skies?
