2017 Meteor Shower Dates and Viewing Tips

Meteor Shower-Taurid, by Channone Arif-Wikimedia Commons

Is there a meteor shower tonight, or should you only hope to see a few falling stars (sporadic meteors)?

When is the next meteor shower? See the Almanac’s 2017 Meteor Showers Calendar for the dates of all the principal meteor showers during the year, plus meteor shower viewing tips.

The most common question is “Where can I see the meteor showers?”

The answer is: ANYWHERE in the sky!  Yes, for this celestial wonder, your specific location does not matter.

And the next question is “When can I see the meteor showers?”

The answer is:  Most showers are midnight to dawn.  Yes, it’s for you night owls or early risers. However, the famous Geminids are all night and some showers happen late evening. See the chart below.

Meteor Shower Viewing Tips

  • For everyone, weather conditions and light pollution are the only reasons you can not see the showers. The sky needs to be dark and clear, away from all the city lights. Bright moonlight, within a few days of a full Moon, will also reduce the number of meteors that you will see. 
  • Where to look? The best place to start is between the radiant and the zenith (straight above you). The radiant is where the meteors appear to start from, such as the constellation Perseus, from which the Perseid meteor showers appear to radiate.
  • When to look? The time of the year for each shower is determined by when in Earth’s orbit it crosses the stream of meteoroids. On the chart below, see the “date of maximum,” which shows when meteor showers will be the strongest.
  • Note that the “best” viewing times are usually predawn and late evening. In nearly all showers, the radiant is highest just before dawn. (The Geminid meteor showers are visible all night long, since Gemini arises just an hour or two after nightfall; the radiant is highest a little after midnight.) Sporadic meteors (unrelated to a shower and commonly called shooting stars) can be seen on any night, but increase in frequency after midnight and peak just before dawn.
  • Starting around midnight, your location on the globe spins around to the forward-facing half of Earth (in relation to the direction of orbit). At dawn, your location on the globe directly faces the direction in which Earth is traveling along its orbit. So between midnight and dawn, you’ll be viewing the meteors head-on, for a more frequent display.
  • You don’t need any special equipment. In fact, binoculars do not work for meteor showers. The naked eye is best.
  • Spread a blanket on the ground and look up in the dark night sky.

  • “Predawn” means an hour or so before morning twilight. Best time to view most major showers.
  • “Late evening” means approximately between 10 p.m. and midnight (or a little past).

In general, most major meteor showers are best seen after midnight; some do not even appear until after then. Usually, a better time to see them is after 2 a.m., and the best time is about an hour or so just before morning twilight. Geminids, however, can be seen starting earlier, such as around 9 or 10 p.m., until morning twilight. Sometimes Draconids may be visible at nightfall through early evening.

It was seen here in pike

It was seen here in pike County (southern ohio) too. Just awesome!

We saw it too!!!! We were

We saw it too!!!! We were looking at stars and around 11:30 or 11:40 pm all of a sudden the whole sky lit up. We didn't see the meteor or shooting star maybe we were just looking in the wrong direction (east) but we did see the unusual bright sky at night for about one second :) Impressive!!!!!

26sept13 @2228 saw shooting

26sept13 @2228 saw shooting star in lake city south carolina usa. was looking straight up and it shoot directly over me.

in Sussex UK I saw a huge bright moving light bigger than any i have ever seen travelling from east to west

Yeah! So did I, I was

Yeah! So did I, I was watching tv, and I have large windows in my living room, saw a large call of light and a streak behind it, (wonder if it hit my neighbor ^^)

I saw a meteor or comet

I saw a meteor or comet today. New York New Rochelle area at about 7:40... can this be confirmed?

I saw a couple in PA between

I saw a couple in PA between 5-5:30am. One around 5ish was very bright, the second at around 5:15ish was not as bright.

I saw perhaps the same

I saw perhaps the same shooting star at about 5:10 AM in CT. It was in the North East sky and was the brightest shooting star I had ever seen. The heavens were lit in spectacular fashion.

Noticed 6-7 shooting stars

Noticed 6-7 shooting stars over an hour starting at 3 am 9/10/13, n/nw from Bandon, OR. Didn't think it was a major shower, was checking site and saw others reporting similar.

At about 9 pm on September

At about 9 pm on September 8th we saw a lovely shooting star in the northeastern sky in Vancouver BC. The comet's tail had a multi-coloured halo. Any idea of which comet or meteor this is? It was much larger and slower than anything I've seen before, and "fell" for about 5 seconds.

No major meteor showers occur

No major meteor showers occur in September, but you probably saw a stray meteor/fireball, which can occur on any night. (On September 8, 2013, there were reports of fireballs in Oregon and California, USA.)

Meteors can burn with different colors, from orange-yellow, yellow, and red, to blue, green, or violet. This depends on the metals in the meteor, and which atoms/molecules in the atmosphere it hits.

A meteor's tail (called a train, or wake) can last about 1 to 10 seconds. Sometimes, a bright fireball can leave a persistent train that lasts a few minutes to over 30 minutes.

Factors that affect the speed of a meteor in the atmosphere include its size, its initial speed, and the angle when it hits the atmosphere.

Update 9/12/13:

Update 9/12/13: Spaceweather.com today mentions the "September epsilon Perseids" meteor shower, a minor shower that appears in September and peaks around Sept. 9; this year was especially prolific. Europe saw quite a show at midnight on Sept. 9 and 10; in North America, we couldn't see it because of daylight. However, stray fireballs had been seen for several days. It could be that the Sept 8 and 11 sightings in North America mentioned by readers were related to this minor shower.

Hi I was driving down

Hi I was driving down VanHouten Ave right off of Highway 46 in NJ at about 3:45am I noticed what I thought at first an airplane but I notice as it was really bright and as it sped across the sky it diminished. Not sure if it was a shooting star or what but all I know its got to be one of the most spectacular things I've ever seen. Wish my daughter could have seen it or had time to take a picture it just all happened so quickly. It amazes me of how amazing and cast this universe is. So much beauty <3

Ok so my family and I just moved to Florida the beginning of April and we were made aware that there will be a meteor shower on the 22nd. My sons birthday is the 23rd so we are looking forward to his early candles so to speak. It says predawn hours. Meaning 5 or 6 a.m.? Just looking for an almost exact time. We do not want to miss this event. Thanks for reading.

"Predawn" means an hour or so

"Predawn" means an hour or so before morning twilight. You can find your local twilight times in The 2013 Old Farmer's Almanac or here at our sunrise/sunset tool:

My son and I saw a what I

My son and I saw a what I think was a meteor. It was coming down towards the ground and looked like it had a flame. If you have ever burned paper outside in a fire and some of it floats above the fire as it is still burning...that's what it looked like and then just burned out. Was that a meteor?

Was just wondering if people

Was just wondering if people from the Midlands, England would be able to see the meteor showers?

So on April 22nd we wake up

So on April 22nd we wake up early that morning, before sunrise to see the meteor shower or we stay up late on the 22nd, wait until it's early on the 23rd and then see the shower?

Question: I'm writing a story

Question: I'm writing a story set in the Cascade Mountains of Washington state in June 21 of 2012. I would sure like my characters to see shooting stars ... would that have been possible?

The major meteor showers have

The major meteor showers have similar timing every year across the Northern Hemisphere--so you can reference the chart above. It would be best to set the scene in August as the Perseids are a major shower that people most always see. Of course, you may also want to check the Weather History that night (was it a clear night without clouds?) and the Moon Phase Calendar (as you want a dark night and a full Moon can drown out shooting stars)!

My son is 5, and got to see the Perseids meteor shower! He loved it! In April of 1997 I saw the HaileBop comet! It looked loke a giant dimond with dimond dust trailing it! That was the most ENCHANTING creation I had ever seen in my life!!!!

Is there any chance that

Is there any chance that Perseid will continue the night of 8/12 into the morning of 8/13? and be visible in Florida?

Yes, the Perseids will

Yes, the Perseids will continue until late August — but the show peaked from late on the 11th through the early hours of the 12th.

I am so excited! I have never seen anything more than shooting star and I'm like 11. It will probably be especially easy to see where I'm from, which is Grantsville, four mile radias and no building bigger than the elementry school. I think this is gonna be great!!!!!!!

I just saw a comet in the sky

I just saw a comet in the sky on my way home from my in-law's, and was curious if the meteor shower due to show tonight would be visible from New Hampshire? Was my first time ever seeing a shooting star or comet or meteor or anything, and it was breathtaking :)

Fantastic to see a comet!

Fantastic to see a comet! Congrats! Unfortunately, in 2012, the almost-full Moon will probably wash out this lightweight meteor shower--which is best seen from the Southern Hemisphere.

Hey, this is amazing. I saw

Hey, this is amazing. I saw something I thought was a comet across between 9:30 and 10:00 on Sunday night. I have seen falling stars several times in my life and to me the seemed to fall in downward motion but this seem to be going horizonally across the sky as blazing ball with a tail until it faded out of view. I live in North Caroina. I just happened to see it while sitting out on the porch talking on the phone. I stayed out for hours watching the sky hoping to see something again. I have never seen an event like this before in 45 years of life. Ihave always been somewhat of a sky watcher, but have seemed to miss out on seeing the night sky in the past few years. It definitely is a sight worth a second glance. Amazing!!! :)

You saw a Delta Aquarid

You saw a Delta Aquarid meteor. The Delta Aquarid and Perseid meteor showers in late July and August are the most reliable meteor showers in the Northern Hemisphere.
After midnight to dawn on July 28-30 was the best viewing of the Delta Aquarid meteors.

Perhaps you mean you saw a

Perhaps you mean you saw a meteor. The comets I have witnessed during the63 years or so have all been rather faint and one would need to stare in their general direction and concentrate to see them. Meteors,on the other-hand, unexpectedly streak across the sky and grab ones attention.

My wife and I live about 30

My wife and I live about 30 minutes south of San Antonio, TX and are wanting to know when the best time for us to try and see the Halley comet Eta Aquarid meteor shower will be and what direction we should be looking? Can anyone help us out please?

I'm not sure which direction,

I'm not sure which direction, but a friend of mine said that it'll start sometime between 2 and 3 AM, and SpaceWeather.com says that the best time to watch would be before tomorrow's sunrise.

What is exactly time named

What is exactly time named "predawn" and "late evening"? When exactly should I observe the stars? Is "late evening" be after midnigt, e.d. 'tomorrow', next date?

Predawn: an hour or so before

Predawn: an hour or so before morning twilight. Best time to view most major showers.
Late evening: approximately between 10 pm and midnight (or a little past).
In general, most major meteor showers are best seen after midnight; some do not even appear until after then. Usually, a better time to see them is after 2 a.m., and the best time is about an hour or so just before morning twilight.
Geminids, however, can be seen starting earlier, such as around 9 or 10 pm, until morning twilight.
Sometimes Draconids may be visible at nightfall through early evening.

One autumn morning in late

One autumn morning in late 1994 I woke up at 3:00 am to drive an hour for work at a near by town. I was driving out on my dirt road where I was able to vveiw an enormous fir ball which was probably an orphan meteor. It was so bright it light up the road and my car like bright day and I thought it would crash on me so I stopped the car. To begin it was very irredescent blue then faded toa warm pinkish red and then disapeared leaving and faint red tail. Was so exciting to see. I thought I would share this with you. Thank you Brian

Thanks for sharing, Brian!

Thanks for sharing, Brian! That's a once-in-a-lifetime sighting!

I've been a Seattle "city"

I've been a Seattle "city" girl most of my life. In 2006 we moved to the "country" in eastern Washington State. I have never seen anything as spectacular as I did at 11:20pm on September 9, 2010.(I even marked my calendar in case this is an annual event)
I was gazing at the eastern sky, when a huge bright green "fireball" with a very long tail passed before my eyes traveling in a northerly direction. I was absolutely "star-struck" to say the least! What did I witness? I googled everything that I could think of, but I have never been given any inkling of what I may have witnessed. Most of the folks that I tell my story to just kind of say "oh really" or they blow me off.
Do you have any idea of what I witnessed that night?
I take my dog on late night walks on our property and am always on the lookout for the beautiful star shows. Ideas, Please? Thank You.

Your description sounds like

Your description sounds like you witnesses a Bolide
The word bolide comes from the Greek βολίς (bolis) [14] which can mean a missile or to flash. The term generally applies to fireballs reaching magnitude −14 or brighter.[15] Astronomers tend to use "bolide" to identify an exceptionally bright fireball, particularly one that explodes (sometimes called a detonating fireball). It may also be used to mean a fireball which creates audible sounds.
