 Perseid Meteor Shower 2021

From midnight on August 11th to August 13th, we have the chance to watch the Perseid meteor shower, which is one of the biggest showers of the year. Luckily, because Vancouver Island is in the Northern Hemisphere, we'll be getting a great view of it! 

If you get to an area with very little light pollution, there's the possibility of spotting up to 40 meteors per hour. And because of how early the crescent moon will be setting, the sky will be extra dark, making the meteors appear even brighter. 

You can get the best view of the meteors before dawn, a good time to start looking would be around 4am. Give your eyes 20-30 minutes beforehand to adjust to the darkness of the night sky, and enjoy the show!
