How to Watch Sunday Night's Perseid Meteor Shower-Online or In Person

The Perseid shower is also known for fireballs-especially bright meteors-that leave long wakes of light and color in the sky as they sail through the Earth's atmosphere. But no matter if the clouds or smoke clear, "you still need to get away from the light pollution of cities", Meteorologist M.J. McDermott said. The best views of the Perseids in Sweden will be in the south of the country, according to website Populär Astronomi .

NASA, ULA to try again tonight to launch Parker Solar Probe

As the Parker Solar Probe probe orbits the sun, it will experience extreme radiation and temperatures as high as 1,377C (2,510F) - close to the melting point of steel. Nasa hopes the findings will enable scientists to forecast changes in Earth's space environment. The probe is going to fly directly into the sun's atmosphere and trace the movement of energy and heat with the particles that form solar winds.

What you need to know about NASA's mission to touch the sun

NASA's plans for the probe include multiple orbits of the sun, repeatedly slingshotting itself around the star and gathering vital science data each time it makes its approach. So really the only way we can now do it is to do this daring mission to plunge into the corona. The Parker Solar Probe , named after American solar astrophysicist Eugene Parker, will, as the USA space agency describes it, " touch the sun " as it flies within 3.9 million miles of the star's surface.
