Shooting stars are actually relatively rare. Due to a sky phenomenon, however, a real falling star rain can be observed over Germany in mid-August.
Stuttgart – Whoever sees a shooting star can make a wish. At least that is an old but still widespread superstition. So you should have a whole wish list in your pocket for August, because there are so many to see due to a rare sky phenomenon. The numerous shooting stars can be traced back to the Perseids stream. As the name of the phenomenon suggests, the meteors of the stream originate from the constellation Perseus and come from fragments of a comet that were blown off and scattered around the sun on its orbit. As BW24 * reports, there is a falling star rain in August due to a phenomenon in the sky.
Last year, a rare phenomenon took place in the night sky (BW24 * reported). At that time, a meteor shower of the so-called Leonids caused numerous shooting stars. * BW24 is an offer from IPPEN.MEDIA.
