Make plans now to stay up late or set the alarm early next week to see a cosmic display of "shooting stars" light up the night sky.
"Professional and amateur astronomers will have a good chance to observe the Perseid meteor shower this year because the Moon will be just two days old at the peak of the shower and hence will not appear in the sky at night".
The shower should be visible on both sides of the equator, although it is reportedly a better watch if you're in the mid-northern latitudes, meaning the top spots are European countries, as well as the U.S. and Canada.
When the "radiant" is highest in the sky, we'll see the most meteors.
White House Plans to Move Forward With Trump’s Space Force
After roasting Pence's speech beat by beat, he turned his attention to the president himself and broke out his Trump impression. Alongside the US Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps and Coast Guard, it will comprise the sixth arm of the US armed forces.
The best way to view the meteor shower is by sitting in a reclining lawn chair or lying on your back and looking up at the sky with a wide view. Although not during the peak, you should still be able to see some meteors in the sky all the way into the last week of August. According to NASA, the best time to watch is any time between 11 p.m. and the first light of morning, when the night is darkest.
Not only is the forecast calling for clear skies, a lack of moonlight means they should be plenty dark as well, creating the ideal conditions.
The shower will be visible to the naked eye.
Perseid meteor shower: 'TEARS of Biblical saint' to RAIN DOWN this weekend
Our advice? Bring a rug, a flask of tea (or, you know, whiskey - pick your poison) and some insect repellent, and get gazing. It takes 20 minutes pretty much for your eyes to adjust to the dark and then you'll say oh there's more of them now.
Perseid meteors pose no threat to Earth, as many of them burn up in the atmosphere more than 50 miles above the surface.
Brad says the best view can be found away from city lights.
It's considered to be the best astronomical event of the year, as around 60 to 70 meteors fall per hour. Scientists from NASA also said that camping out in the country can triple the amount of visible meteors.
