Perseids Meteor Shower. August 12, 13
The Perseids is one of the best meteor showers, producing up to 60 meteors per hour at their peak.
This year it should peak on the night of August 12 and the morning of the 13th.
You may see some meteors any time from July 23 - August 22, and I saw some this weekend.
The radiant point for this shower will be in the constellation Perseus.
The thin, crescent moon will be out of the way- -potentially a spectacular show.
For best viewing, look to the northeast after midnight.
