Here is when Perseids shower peaks in Oman this month

"You should be able to see some meteors from July 17 to August 24, with the rates increasing during the weeks before August 12 and decreasing after the 13th", NASA said in a skywatching video.

People can view the meteors streaming across the sky anywhere away from downtown Lawrence.

It's nearly time for the annual Perseid Meteor Shower, and NASA expects it'll be the most dazzling meteor shower of the year.

"Comets are spectacular and handsome and take months to go across the sky but every time they go near the sun they are melted down a little bit". The meteors will appear to originate in the northeast sky.

"We're expecting 50 to 70 meteors per hour this weekend", Pahud said. In the evening, starting around 10 p.m., you'll see fewer meteors, but those that do appear will be longer-lasting and tend to have longer tails. It's a rich meteor shower, and it's steady. "Remember, you don't have to look directly at the constellation to see them".

If you want to catch the Perseids in all their glory, a drive to the darkest place near your home should suffice.

Meteor showers are typically visible with the naked eye, so no special equipment is needed, but those in rural areas with minimal light pollution will have a clearer view. The Slooh observatory will host a livestream of the shower starting at 5 p.m. ET on Sunday.

"A meteor shower is a collision between the Earth and the trail of a comet or an asteroid", Dr. Faherty says.

There's a unique opportunity to watch what may look like shooting stars putting on a show this weekend. In those cases they can actually predict that when the Earth passes through the orbital path of the comet there will be a higher than average debris field.

The meteors strike our atmosphere at around 134,000 miles per hour and create vivid streaks of light when they burn up.

Though the Perseids can be spotted between July 17 and August 24, the best views will be from Sunday at 4 p.m.to Monday at 4 a.m. EST, when the night is almost moonless. But the most spectacular long-lasting meteors, known as "Earthgrazers", can be seen when the radiant is still low above the horizon.
