6 meteor showers will likely provide better views than the Perseids

Summer sees the greatest number of “shooting stars”, with July being the peak. And every summer, skywatchers around the world look forward to observing the Perseid meteors – the “Old Faithful” of annual meteor shows. In the process, however, most viewers will overlook six relatively minor meteor showers that peak between July 26 and August 21 (three in July and three in August).

This year, unfortunately, an almost full moon will seriously hamper the observation of the Perseids. So why not take the opportunity to see the other six, all of whom will enjoy dark, moonless skies?
