D-10 before The Perseid Night at Peace Wadi

perseid-meteor-shower-peace wadi

Peace Wadi will organize the Perseid Night on the 12th of August. We will celebrate the peak of Perseid meteor shower, the debris of the Comet Swift-Tuttle that crosses our solar system every 2000 years.

Comet Swift-Tuttle is the largest object known that passes by Earth, as it is 26 km (16 miles) wide. It passed around the sun in 1992 and we are able to see its debris falling into the atmosphere burning up in a bright burst of light. Those pieces of comets are travelling at around 59 km/s (37 miles/s). and there average size is the size of a grain of sand…

You can observe it from anywhere on Earth from 8/4 to 8/17, and its peak takes place on the might between 8/12 and 8/13. Make sure to bring something comfortable to sit on and wait 30 minutes before your eyes adjust to the dark. Then you are ready to see the magic of Nature.

If you are around Peace Wadi on that night, come with your friends and enjoy our beautiful spot 😉
