The Perseid meteor shower occurs every year in summer when the Earth passes through debris and dust of the 109P/Swift-Tuttle comet. The Perseids, one of the brightest meteorite swarms, consist of a multitude of stellar particles which due to their high speed glow up and burn by entering Earth’s atmosphere.
