Here's how you can see the Perseid Meteor Shower Saturday night

Perseids are bits of the comet Swift-Tuttle and often create the most wonderful meteor shower of the year. At its peak, the Perseid meteor shower will see about 50-60 meteors from the Swift-Tuttle comet cruise across the sky every hour. Debris from the comet breaks off and can drift in space for years before being captured by Earth's gravity and falling into the sky. But like any skyward event, there are some logistics to consider in order to get the ultimate view.

"You might be lucky or unlucky; that's the way with meteors", he said. It's also when the Earth will be the most within the stream of Swift-Tuttle.

The Perseids are called so because the point from which they appear to hail (called the radiant) lies in the constellation Perseus. Tonight between 9 pm and the early hours of tomorrow are when the best of the showers can be seen.
