Because a Perseids showering occurs during a identical time as a Delta Aquarids shower, it can be treacherous perplexing to know that one we are seeing.

During a 1990s and early 2000s a Leonid meteor storms had 10 times some-more meteors per hour than a best Perseid display.

‘During a good Perseid showering underneath ideal conditions, we can see about one meteor per minute’, Dr Cooke said.

‘Now suppose yourself being behind in 1833, on a night of Nov. 12. Looking outside, we would see something like 20 to 30 meteors PER SECOND’.
