Next Meteor Shower to Be Seen Over U.S.

The Perseids are the most popular meteor shower of the year, according to the American Meteor Society (AMS).

The Perseid meteor shower is still active this year, lasting from July 14 to September 1.

A rural location should have been able to see between 50 and 75 meteors per hour.

Showers may not have been visible to people living in areas with heavy cloud cover or light pollution.

Anyone who wants to see another shower can do so when the Orionids peak in October.

The Orionid shower isn't as active as the Perseid shower, producing only 10 to 20 meteors per hour.

The Orionid shower will be active from September 26 to November 22, with the peak occurring between October 20 and October 21.
