In India, the meteor shower will peak this week between the night of Monday, August 12, and Wednesday, August 14.
While this year's meteor shower will be affected by a full moon at the shower's peak and rates of visible meteors will be reduced from an average of 60 per hour to approximately 15-20 per hour, there'll still be plenty to see for anyone prepared to wait up to catch a glimpse at the optimum time.
Between July and August every year, Earth travels through the orbital debris of the comet Swift-Tuttle. The meteors are called the Perseids because they radiate from a point in the constellation Perseus.

The tests violate United Nations Security Council resolutions that ban North Korea from any ballistic missile activity. Last week, South Korea and the USA conducted preliminary sessions in the run-up to their joint summertime training.
Ice and dust from the comet burn up in our atmosphere, creating the meteor shower.
Despite the lunar interference, the shower will still be surprisingly visible across the world given the moon's relatively low position in the southern sky due to the Earth's tilt.
In particularly good years, which do not include 2019, as many as 200 Perseids are visible per hour.
This year, however, United States space agency NASA said between 15 and 20 meteors will be visible. The Perseids are best seen between about 2 am local time and dawn, according to the space agency. NASA also suggests staying up late, or waking up early throughout the nights of August 11 to 12 and August 12 to August 13. You can see the Perseid shower in India from the NASA Facebook Watch page on your desktop or computer or mobile given by the time the NASA stream starts, the day would have begun in India thanks to the time difference.
The shower runs until August 26 and is best seen after dark and before dawn.
