Where can I see the Perseid meteor shower?

The National Weather Service says the moon will make it hard to see some of the meteors, but the best viewing will be in a dark sky away from the radiant, or where the meteors appear to be coming from. For this shower, the radiant is in the constellation of Perseus, which is also where the annual event gets its name. You could also try to look for meteors before the moon rises or after it sets in your location.

Tips for watching the Perseid meteor shower

Experts have also suggested making sure you let your eyes adjust for about 20 minutes when looking at the dark sky — you’ll be more likely to catch a glimpse of the fast-moving meteors.

If you miss the peak, don’t fret. The Perseids are visible until Aug. 26, so you still have time to catch a peek of the show.
