This video provides information about the observation of the 2021 Perseids. It is intended for the general public. It has been produced in the framework of the Southwestern Europe Meteor Network (SWEMN).
The video contains 3D computer animations and actual footage about how the Perseids can be seen in the atmosphere, but also about how Perseid meteorids hit Moon and generate lunar impact flashes. For this purpose we have employed some of the recordings performed in the framework of our SMART and MIDAS projects.
