The annual Perseid meteor shower is set to make a dazzling late summer appearance this week.
Stargazers are especially excited because this year marks the first time since 2010 that the meteor shower aligns with a new moon, making for ideal dark skies,according to CNN.
Even better, there’s no need to run out and purchase an expensive telescope to witness the light show. All that’s required to enjoy this wonder of nature is a clear night and a view from the Northern Hemisphere.
The celestial display is expected to peak during the overnight hours of Aug. 12 into the morning of Aug. 13. Meteors will be visible starting around 10 p.m., but the best time to catch a glimpse will be around 4 a.m. Eastern Time, when up to 100 meteors per hour may be visible from a dark sky!
