The earth has begun crashing through debris left by the passage of a comet.
A VIU professor with the Department of Physics, Engineering and Astronomy, Greg Arkos says the phenomenon is otherwise known as the Perseid Meteor Shower and it happens once a year….
The light show will be at its richest tomorrow night (Sat) and Arkos says the best way to see some of the activity is in a dark sky away from the “city” lights.
With the smoke clearing from our sky we should get a better view of what is going on but Arkos adds the light from the moon will likely interfere with the event a bit.
