One of the biggest and best meteor showers of the year will arrive this week.  The annual Perseid meteor shower will peak Friday night into Saturday, August 12th-13th.  At its peak, as many as 100 meteors an hour will be visible in the night sky.  However, this year’s Perseid shower lines up with a full moon, which will make things a bit more difficult to see.  The best time to view the meteors is early in the night.
