Hey, it’s August and… Guess what? Time for another Perseids meteor shower…
The Perseids reaches its peak activity on the night of August 11-12. A good number should be visible for a few nights before and after peak.
Your best chance to see a significant number of Perseid meteors will most likely be during the predawn hours on August 12, but, you will have to deal with the light of a wide waning crescent moon.
You might try the mornings of August 11 and 13, you might see some Perseids then as well.
