NASA cameras catch early fireballs from Perseid meteor bathe of 2020 (video)


One of the year’s best meteor showers is well underway, as a new video shows.

NASA’s All-Sky Fireball Network captured Perseid meteors streaking overhead on Saturday and Sunday (Aug. 8 and Aug. 9). The footage, which you can see here, serves as a reminder to head outside for the famous Perseid shower, which is expected to peak overnight Tuesday to Wednesday (Aug. 11 to Aug. 12).
