The Perseid Meteor Shower is said to be one of the best meteor showers of the year and if you want to catch a glimpse, you’ll have to stay up until the early mornings of Monday and Tuesday (just before dawn) and get away from the city.
The Perseid Meteor Shower is one of nature’s best and amazing shows. It is an opportunity to see the night sky light up with streaks of light. This annual celestial event is typically the most visible meteor shower for Northern observers, and best of all, you can make plans to watch it.
According to NASA, just before dawn is the best time to view the Perseid meteor shower.
