Perseid Meteor Shower
All Programs

The maximum rate of meteors expected to be visible is around 80 per hour (ZHR). However, this assumes a perfectly dark sky and that the radiant of the meteor shower is directly overhead. In practice, the number of meteors you are likely to see is lower than this, and can be calculated from the ZHR formula.  From Taipei , the radiant of the shower will appear 23° above your north-eastern horizon at midnight.This means you are likely to see only around 31 meteors per hour, since the radiant will be low in the sky, reducing the chance of seeing meteors.  The radiant of the Perseid meteor shower is at around right ascension 03h00m, declination 58°N, as shown by the green cross on the planetarium above. All of the meteors will appear to be traveling directly outward from this point, as indicated by the white lines drawn above.  The Moon will be 12 days old at the time of peak activity, and being so close to Full Moon will severely limit the observations that will be possible. To see the most meteors, the best place to look is not directly at the radiant itself, but at any dark patch of sky which is around 30–40° away from it. It is at a distance of around this distance from the radiant that meteors will show reasonably long trails without being too spread out.More information can be found here: https://in-the-sky.org/news.php?id=20190813_10_100
