The actual peak night is Sunday, August 12th, when you'll see up to 100 meteors per hour, especially after midnight, when the Earth has turned, so to speak, into the path of the debris from Comet Swift-Tuttle that creates the Perseids.
Last year, the meteor shower was more hard to see, as the moon was three quarters full. But it moves through the densest debris between August 11 and August 13.More news: Plenty of Sunshine for Final Two Rounds of PGA Championship
Make sure to look up this weekend as the Perseid Meteor Shower puts on its annual show in the skies above South Florida. The Perseids are rich in fireball meteors that are very bright and often leave a trail across the sky that will last for a second or two.
This year during peak, people should see about 60 to 70 meteors per hour, but in outburst years (such as in 2016) the rate can be between 150 and 200 meteors an hour. However, the meteors can appear anywhere in the sky. NASA recommends viewing the meteor shower from dark areas, such as the countryside of suburb area, so stay away from those city lights! Find a spot where you can lay back and comfortably observe as much of the sky as possible. However this year should be an nearly moonless night, making it one of the best meteor showers of the year. The moon will be at a crescent, which means more darkness to see more meteors.More news: Pogba stars as Man United win EPL opener
