Grab a blanket and find your best meteor-watching spot — the Perseid meteor shower peaks on Monday, Aug. 12.

The Perseid meteor shower is caused by Comet Swift-Tuttle, which spreads debris across the night sky and creates the fireballs. According to NASA, it’s usually known to be the best shower in the year due to the frequency of meteors and that Perseid meteors tend to be bright and fast.

NASA recommends heading outside around 2 a.m. local time for the best views on the nights of Aug. 11-12 and Aug. 12-13. The peak is estimated to show 15-20 meteors per hour.

Unfortunately this year’s shower falls during a full moon, which means you won’t see as many meteors as you would during a new moon; the Perseid meteor shower usually has a peak rate of 60 meteors per hour.

Go outside somewhere with little light pollution and an unobstructed view of the sky and lie on your back for the most ideal viewing experience. Don’t bother with binoculars — you want a full view of the sky. Let your eyes adjust to the darkness for about 30 minutes and don’t look at any bright lights after (like your phone) to see more meteors during the shower.

If the weather is poor or you don’t feel like venturing outside, NASA is hosting a live stream of the Perseid meteor shower from Huntsville, Alabama on the NASA Meteor Watch Facebook starting around 8 p.m. ET.
