Known for its fast and bright meteors, the annual Perseid meteor shower is anticipated to be one of the best potential meteor viewing opportunities this year. This year is going to be especially striking because of the new moon, painting the ideal backdrop for the late-summer nature show.
The Perseids got their name because they appear to come out of the constellation Perseus to Earth. Although not during the peak, you should still be able to see some meteors in the sky all the way into the last week of August.
A few Perseids can typically be seen each night between July 17 and August 24, but they will hit their peak from August 11 to 13, particularly from Sunday night into Monday morning.

The shower will be visible all over the United Kingdom, as long as the skies are clear. "The best instrument to use for any meteor shower is the unaided human eye, because you have the widest possible field of view".
Sky gazers and astronomers recommend watching the meteor show during the darkest hour of the night, far away from cities and other sources of light pollution. Make sure you have a dark area to view. Scientists from NASA also said that camping out in the country can triple the amount of visible meteors.
