Perseids Meteor Shower in Ashkelon. August 12-13, 2023.

The Perseids Meteor Shower is one of the world’s most impressive astronomical events and every year, many people head to Israel’s southern district for a clear view of this unique sight. Each summer, the Perseids Shower occurs when the earth crosses the path of the Swift–Tuttle comet. As ice and dust meet Earth’s atmosphere, traveling at around 130,000 miles per hour, an impressive meteor shower lights up the night’s sky.

These meteor showers occur between July 17 and August 24 every year and tend to peak at around August 9-13. In 2023, the Perseids Meteor Shower will occur on the night after August 12 (with the densest time being the early hours of August 13). This year, you will see 60 to 100 meteors within an hour. You don’t need fancy equipment to witness this marvel, just find a spot far from city light contamination and take in this unique and breathtaking lunar event.
