LOOK UP! Perseid meteor shower peaks this weekend Best meteor shower of the year peaks this weekend

The meteors create a spectacular light show as they burn up in our atmosphere and travel around 37 miles per second so don't blink you might miss it.

The shower's peak will be visible both nights of August 11-12 and August 12-13, with NASA meteor expert Bill Cooke saying the August 12-13 show would be the better of the two. In areas where it is extremely dark, away from the light pollution of Dutch cities and towns, one may even be able to see around 100 shooting stars per hour.

Earth is now passing through the path of Comet Swift-Tuttle and the best meteor shower of the year will happen this weekend as a result.

Premier League 2018-19: Who is best equipped to challenge Manchester City?
Arsenal legend, Martin Keown has predicted the English Premier League (EPL) clubs that will finish in the top-four this season. Spurs (need freshness in the squad, pronto, just to say "nobody's place should be taken for granted")".

This year, it is possible to see more shooting stars than last year.

Conditions look great for stargazing, we will have a new moon that will set early that night and we are expecting mostly clear skies that night. The Perseids peak during mid-August.

The Perseid meteor shower will peak from 4 p.m. EST on Sunday until 4 a.m. EST on Monday, according to NASA.

'Crazy Rich Asians' movie premieres in LA
And while most men would look like they were heading to a high school prom in that colour, Golding is hunky enough to pull it off. In a lengthy post on Twitter, she said the premiere is "truly historic" and "more than a movie, it's a movement".

During the peak, skywatchers should be able to see the most meteors in the shortest amount of time.

It's best to find a spot where there is little to no artificial light, as this makes viewing more hard because city lights are stronger than faint shooting stars. As a bonus, Mars and Saturn should also be easily viewable.

Where to look? Look to the North-NE and find the constellation Perseus and most meteorites will appear to come from the top of this constellation.
