The Perseids, known for being bright and fast, are streaking across the sky as we speak, but will peak starting this weekend.
According to EarthySky.org, most meteors will likely fall in the predawn hours on Tuesday, Aug. 13. While the bright moon is a bummer, remember, it only takes one fireball to make your night.
"People should consider viewing meteors during the nights leading up to the peak", Samuhel said.
Avoid sources of light pollution like city lights and card, and try to find a wide-open area with unobstructed views of the horizon. While this works best in more remote places, anywhere that has a higher elevation will also provide more ideal viewing conditions.

An FTC spokesman said only that "investigations are non-public, and we don't comment on ... the existence of an investigation". In a vehicle-to-vehicle crash, the occupant of the heavier vehicle is less likely to be injured .
The Perseid meteors are smaller pieces, or debris, of the Swift-Tuttle comet, which was named after the astronomers who discovered it.
"Not only is it much more comfortable to observe the stars lying down, but you'll also see more that way". Depending on where you are, the moon may set before those early hours, which means it'll be darker and easier to spot any meteors. The name "Perseids" was given to those particles because they seem to come from the direction of the Perseus constellation.
This information-laid out in a study published recently in the Journal of Environmental Management-may be particularly beneficial to skywatchers who want to find the best viewing spots for the spectacular Perseid meteor shower, which is now in full swing. To enjoy it, all you have to do is look up at the night sky.
Caution: Meteor watching takes patience; it may take a few minutes even on a dark night to see one, during a meteor shower. However, if you adjust the time you're heading outside to see the meteors, you should be able to see some.
The Draconid meteor shower is the next meteor shower, which falls on October 8, followed by the Orionid meteor shower, which will take place on October 21.
