Thanks to a Perseids peak that will happen this month, there will be around 60 to 70 meteors an hour, according to scientists.
'This year the moon will be near new moon, it will be a crescent, which means it will set before the Perseid show gets underway after midnight," a NASA meteor expert, Bill Cooke, told space.com. "The moon is very favorable for the Perseids this year, and that'll make the Perseids probably the best shower of 2018 for people who want to go out and view it."
According to Astronomy magazine, Monday, Aug. 13, will be the best time to view the shower shortly before dawn.
For those living in a populated city, light pollution can overpower spectators from viewing the shower. Click here to find locations nearby for better viewing.
