Saturday and Sunday night, August 11th and 12th, mark the peak of the meteor shower that is already going on.
The meteor shower's peak will be visible both the nights of Aug. 11-12 and Aug. 12-13, Cookesaid, but he's inclined this year to lean toward the night of Aug. 12-13 for the better show. But you don't need to stare at Perseus to spot meteors - in fact, it may be better to simply stare unfocused into the sky and let your more-sensitive peripheral vision do the heavy lifting.

This Perseid meteor shower will take place during a almost new moon-meaning it won't interfere with the show-and is expected to be the best meteor shower this year. That means staying away from urban areas if possible, as light pollution can dominate in cities.

Some of the best local dark skies are found in the Horse Heaven Hills and foothills of the Blue Mountains.
Not only will the night sky be dark, but also clear, according to Matt Walters, a meteorologist with Topeka's National Weather Service.
Swift-Tuttle measures a massive 16 miles, and last passed by Earth in 1992.
