Bishop Museum gives pointers on how to watch the Perseid meteor shower

How to Observe the Perseid Meteor Shower

The Perseid meteor shower occurs predawn from Thursday August 11 thru Saturday August 13. Mike Shanahan from the Bishop Museum joined Sunrise this morning to tell us when and how to observe it. He says the Perseid will be the best meteor shower of the year – reliable, and no interference from moon. It's also a "Do it yourself" event where people can look for shooting stars from any dark location.
