The shower can be seen during moonless nights between now and August 4th and will peak during the early morning hours of August 11th, 12th and 13th. It won’t be a great to view at that point because of the full moon, though.
You can expect to see a meteor making its way across the sky every few minutes and you may spot a fireball or two. The comet Swift-Tuttle orbits the sun once every 133 years and every August, Earth passes through the comet's debris field. The ice and dust burn up in Earth's atmosphere to create a meteor shower. NASA scientists say the sparkling display can be seen any time after 10 p.m.
