This year the peak of the meteor shower fell in the night from 11 to 12 August, but experts claim that the night of the 13th of August will be no less spectacular.
The Perseid meteors, shed by comet Swift-Tuttle, stage their show every August and are among the brightest of all shooting stars. But like any skyward event, there are some logistics to consider in order to get the ultimate view.
The Perseids were the first meteor shower to be linked to a comet when astronomer Giovanni Schiaparelli spotted their association with Swift-Tuttle in 1862.
Because the meteors are coming approximately from the direction of the Perseus constellation (thus the name Perseid), look between the northeastern horizon and the point right above you.
However, "The Perseids will be a little more hard to see due to the presence of the moon, which will be three-quarters full and will rise shortly before the shower hits its peak", Space.com quoted Cooke.
In ukrgidromettsentr say that the Perseids will be visible from the Windows of the apartments, however, it is best to watch them away from the lights of big cities, to enjoy this incredible phenomenon.
If the moon is really ruining your skywatching ops, there will be a free webcast beginning at 8 p.m. Earlier in the day, you can also tune into Italy's Virtual Telescope Project for a webcast starting at 4:50 Eastern Time.
Greg Arkos, a professor of astronomy at VIU's Nanaimo campus, told NanaimoNewsNOW the annual Perseid meteor shower will be especially spectacular on Saturday.
"I think under good conditions you might see one or two a minute, probably more towards Sunday morning rather than Saturday". Depending on where you are, it could definitely be worth it.
