Look up: Perseid meteor shower peaks this weekend

Yahoo News explains: Where can you see the Perseid meteor shower?
This particular meteor shower "normally produces, statistically, up to 60 meteors per hour", Henderson said. According to Space.com, this year's peak will be visible both the nights of August 11-12 and August 12-13. This year is an excellent one for the Perseids, because they will reach their maximum on a new moon weekend; without any bright moonlight, skywatchers will be able to see many fainter streaks.
Coming to a sky in the Northern Hemisphere is a dazzling show for stargazers: the Perseid meteor shower. The meteor shower is formed from the debris from the Swift-Tuttle comet as the tiny debris enters the Earth's atmosphere.
Lake Afton Public Observatory, 25000 W. 39th Street South in Goddard, will be open from 9-11:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday night, where visitors can look through the telescope to view Jupiter, Saturn, Mars, and potentially Venus.
Perseid meteors pose no threat to Earth, as many of them burn up in the atmosphere more than 50 miles above the surface. "Instead if your just zoned in on one area you're going to miss everything that's going on over here".
It's called the Perseid meteor shower and it happens every August.

People can look directly overhead to see the meteors, as long as they are in a dark area without too much light pollution . The comet that left the Perseid meteor stream is a piece of dirty ice about 26km in diameter called 109P/Swift-Tuttle.
Every 133 years it makes an orbit around the sun, each time leaving behind a trail consisting of trillions of little pieces of debris.
To view it, look high in the northeastern sky to find the constellations Perseus and Cassiopeia. Allow your eyes some time to adjust.
You don't need any equipment to view the shower, it is best watched unobstructed by telescopes or binoculars.
