The annual meteor shower peaked on Tuesday morning but will still be visible and worth viewing the rest of the week. NASA encouraged everyone to go out and see the astronomical spectacle in person tonight.
Complicating matters further is the fact we're less than two days away from a full moon. Here's what else you need to know to catch the Perseids in Miami. Perseid meteors pose no danger to Earth, according to NASA.
The Perseid meteor shower will be lighting up the night sky once again on the night of August 12th and 13th.
The best way to watch the astronomical fireworks is to go outside, turn the lights off and look for a broad patch of sky, away from trees. Tomorrow, the moon sets at 4:59 a.m. So instead of roughly 60 an hour, as there have been in past years, there might be 20 or 30 shooting stars an hour this year, experts say.
The Earth then crosses the comet's orbit between July and August, slamming into the orbital debris.
As the comet swings around the Sun every 133 years, bits and pieces of rock and dust break off under the Sun's intense heat. But...this year's shower will have to contend with a bright Moon on the peak nights. The added moonlight will serve to drown numerous meteors during the overnight hours into the wee hours of Wednesday.
