Watch the attractive Perseid 2019 fireballs TONIGHT

Perseid meteors upper left streak past time-lapse-captured stars north of Cheyenne, Wyoming. The Perseid meteor shower will be at its peak in the Lima region the next few nights

Monday night and early Tuesday morning, however, is when it will be at its best. If you trace back all of the meteors during the upcoming shower, they will all originate from a part of the sky near the constellation Perseus. Meteor showers are associated with the debris from a space body, generally a comet.

"Up to 100 meteors per hour will occur during the peak night", AccuWeather Astronomy Blogger Dave Samuhel said. "The best time to see it is with no moon because it makes the sky darker".

If the viewing conditions are not ideal, you can view the meteor shower online.

The famed Perseids meteor shower peaks night, going into the early hours of Tuesday morning.

The radiant point will be in the northeastern sky, but you do not need to focus on this area of the sky to see the meteor shower.

Moreover, they are in for a better and a bigger tomorrow and are looking forward to a long-lasting and an ever closer union. Like its rival Apple, Samsung removed the standard headphone jack, but included USB-C headphones in the box.

And, if for some reason you miss this shower, don't fret: the Geminid meteor shower, in December, also serves cosmic gymnastics that move at lightening speeds through the sky. The meteors can appear anywhere in the sky, but they look the brightest against the darkest sky, which is straight up.

According to the American Meteor Society, you should be able to see about 50-75 members per hour.

"The Perseid meteor shower is often considered to be one of the best meteor showers of the year due to its high rates and pleasant late-summer temperatures", a blog post on the NASA website explains.

Tonight (between August 12-13) will be the best time to see it this year. But, if you're not about that, you can then also observe perseids anytime after 9 PM. NASA plans to livestream the meteor shower on its NASA Meteor Watch Facebook page.

While activity from the meteor shower can be spotted for more than a month, the peak is considered one of the brightest and most reliable annual events.
