It's that time again – the time when night skies are ablaze with nature's fireworks, better known as the Perseid Meteor Shower.
For the past 2,000 years, debris from the Swift-Tuttle Comet has been raining debris visible to the naked eye in the nighttime sky; sometimes 100 or
more meteors per hour are spotted, reported the International Business Times .
Peak viewing times this year fall on Aug. 12-13. But because it coincides with a full moon, the 100 or more meteors normally visible will dwindle to
only 20 to 30.
