This week will be the peak time to see the Perseid Meteor Showers. There will be very little moon light which will make viewing even better. The best time to view the meteor shower will be in the early hours before dawn. If you can get away from city lights that will help too. Sounds like a perfect excuse to go camping! Here is some more information about viewing meteor showers and here you can learn more about the Perseid Meteor showers specifically. Here's a beautiful time elapse video of Perseid Meteor showers that I found on youtube.
