The meteor shower has already started, but the moon's in the way.

Luckily, the shower peaks during a practically moonless sky with 50-100 meteors per hour.

Why this Year's Perseid Meteor Shower is One to Watch

This year’s Perseid Meteor Shower is going to be one for the books ????This month, the shower peaks during a practically moonless sky for a better show????Keep your early mornings open on August 11-13 to see the most meteors????On these dark nights, you could see anywhere from 50-100 meteors per hour????If you miss it, don’t worry… you still might be able to catch meteors until August 24????What’s special about the Perseids you might ask?

????The meteors come from Comet Swift-Tuttle, the largest object to repeatedly pass Earth????Even when it’s not close by, Earth still moves through the debris it leaves behind????which puts on the best show for us here in the Northern Hemisphere??
