Meteor showers are a great opportunity for time-lapse videos and long-exposure photography, allowing your shots of the night sky to turn into van Gogh-like paintings of this starry spectacle.
The shower peaks on tonight, 12 August, but will be visible for a day or two either side.
The Perseid meteor shower peaks this weekend and viewing conditions should be spectacular in mid-Missouri.

As is always the case with these kind of celestial events, they'll be enjoyed much more away from heavily populated areas, as the light pollution of large cities and towns will bleach out the darkness of the sky.
The phenomenon, known as the Perseids, occurs in August every year, when the earth moves through the solar orbit of the Swift-Tuttle comet. Entering the atmosphere at high speed, the friction they create as they pass through causes the air around the meteor to heat up dramatically, resulting in a characteristic brief bright streak of light. But "Earthgrazer" meteors, which skim Earth's atmosphere and showcase long, blazing tails, are visible earlier when the radiant is low above the horizon. According to NASA meteor expert Bill Cooke, the shower should feature 60 to 70 meteors per hour at its peak.
Whilst meteors can be seen on any night, at certain times of the year their numbers drastically increase. No special equipment is needed, and you can look anywhere in the sky! NASA will also be streaming a view of the sky from the NASA Meteor Watch Facebook Page.
