What are the Perseids?

Each August, Earth passes the orbit of periodic comet Swift-Tuttle. This passage strewn with billions of dust particles gives the famous meteor shower of the Perseids. In order to be able to observe and interpret this phenomenon, Equinox Aventure offers once again this year the opportunity for the local population to participate in an adventure during the night of the Perseids while being accompanied by a guide and an astronomer.
