Reaching its peak visibility this weekend, a number of eager stargazers were dazzled by last night's (11 August) astronomical show, where a number of handsome shooting stars and green lights lit up the sky. Hopefully, clear skies will allow for the best viewing. "The meteorites from the comet's trail appear to come from the constellation Perseus, which lends the shower its name", Space.com reports. However, the meteors can appear anywhere in the sky.
It's always best to look for meteors between midnight and dawn, but there have already been sightings after sunset but before midnight.
"The moonless sky this year means the viewing will be excellent, and the shower's predicted peak is timed especially well for North America", Diana Hannikainen, Sky & Telescope magazine's observing editor, said in a statement.
"The Perseid meteor shower is spectacular". Peak temperatures can reach as much as 10,000F (5,537F) as they speed across the sky.
If you're lucky enough to reside in a hilly or mountainous region, you're all set for the best views - so find yourself a nice spot and enjoy the show.
Stargazers who want to see the show without risking mosquito bites can also watch the meteor shower on a live stream here.
And don't forget to grab your camera before you head out. Historical observations show that Perseids has been a super active meteor shower for a long time. The bugs have calmed down, weather is ideal, you'll have a meteor shower to watch and the fire ban has been lifted at Algonquin Park.
