How can you see the meteor shower?

This year forecasters say we could see anywhere from 60-70 meteors per hour but during outburst years (like 2016) the rate can be between 150-200 meteors per hour.

Even if you find ideal urban viewing conditions, there are a lot of other factors that can affect whether you see meteors, including whether the sky is clear and the properties of meteors themselves.

The Perseids appear to emanate from between the constellations Perseus and Cassiopeia, but to catch them there's really no need to worry about which direction you're looking.

A clear sky could make way for an incredible natural show of streaking fireball meteors and so far, (as of Friday afternoon) the forecast is looking flawless! 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.

According to information on the NASA website, the Perseids - which are visible annually in July and August - are mostly small bits of grit that were expelled from a comet named Swift-Tuttle and continue to follow this comet's orbit as they slowly disperse. By night, most of any rain will exit with remnant cloud cover scattered around.

The shower will be visible to the naked eye. The ice and dust from that field then burn up in our atmosphere, creating the meteor shower.

People can also bring lawn chairs and blankets to watch the meteor shower from the grassy area around the observatory. Smoke from the California wildfires that now covers parts of the western USA may create hazy sky conditions capable of significantly dimming bright stars - and bright meteors.

A number of planets will also be highly visible. If you're on the West Coast, be aware that, as AccuWeather points out, the wildfires may make the meteors harder to see. Around 10 p.m., the meteors' visibility should begin to increase.
