Perseus Starfall in St. Petersburg

On the night of Monday to Tuesday, August 12th and August 13th, residents and guests to the city will be able to enjoy the amazing spectacle of the brightest meteor shower this year. The main thing is not to forget make a wish when you see the meteor shower, and your wishes will come true. ;)

On this night, our planet is as close as possible to the tail of the comet Swift-Tuttle, which gives rise to meteor rain in the constellation Perseus. This meteor shower is one of the brightest meteor showers that can be seen in the sky during the year. Hundreds of thousands of people worldwide every year become spectators of this incredible natural phenomenon. Of course, watching the fall of the luminous objects are best seen in warm countries where the sky is clear, but this year's Perseus peak falls on a moonless night, which will be observed on an amazing night, even for the residents of St. Petersburg.

The best time to see the Perseus meteor shower is from 20:30 to 04:30.
