Stay up late Thursday night to catch the once-a-year Perseids Meteor Shower. The Perseids are considered by many to be the best meteor show of the year, so you don’t want to miss this!
The meteor shower is expected to peak after midnight on Friday morning. In a dark setting, you can expect to see 60 to 100 meteors per hour!
Heads up: The moon will be full this year for the show, so it may make some of the meteors harder to see.
