Watch 2015 Perseid Meteor Shower. Photographed during a 50 mile, 9 day backpack in the Yosemite Backcountry. 2015 was a great year due to the waning and new moon during peak viewing times. The peak of the shower occurred on August 13th 2015. Be sure to select 4K resolution when viewing and look for most meters just before sunrise. Please hold off your comments about the airplanes, Ive been chasing meteors for almost 10 years and I know the difference. If you know the Perseids, most meteors happen just before sunrise and you will see many meteors just as the video washes out. This video has been used with permission by NASA, Earthsky.org, astronomy festivals, and many local new agencies to demonstrate this famous shower.
