The Perseid Meteor shower is said to be 'the best meteor shower of the year' and it can be seen at it's peak this weekend.  Everyone will see up to 100 meteors per hour and possible fireballs August 12th and 13th.  The best time to watch is at midnight both nights.  The meteors can be seen anywhere but will be best across the Northern Hemisphere. 

To see the spectacle, be sure to be away from any bright city lights.  Take a blanket and just lie back and enjoy!
