The Perseid meteors are bits and pieces of space rock debris broken off from Comet Swift-Tuttle as it barrels around the Sun every 133 years. The meteors can appear anywhere in the sky, but they look the brightest against the darkest sky, which is straight up.

"You'll get a decent show as long as you're north of the equator", he said. 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. NASA will also be streaming a view of the sky from the NASA Meteor Watch Facebook Page.
