The Year’s Brightest Meteor Shower To Dazzle BC Skies This Week

Perseids 2018 The bright fireballs might erupt at a rate of 50 to 60 an hour
You can still see meteors before and after the Perseid showers peak, and you dont need special equipment. That's fewer than the 150-200 meteors per hour that can be seen in years when the shower is in outburst, but will likely still make for quite the show.
Meanwhile, the best place to view the Perseids meteor shower is in the Northern Hemisphere, so viewers in the United Kingdom and USA should be golden. If you happen to have trouble sleeping on Sunday night (August 12), that's a ideal time to step outside.
The Perseids get their name from the constellation Perseus, which the meteors seem to come from (they do not actually originate in the constellation).
Downloading a star-gazing mobile app can also add to the experience of meteor showers.
Viewing here in West Michigan appears to be fair to good as of this writing. The best time to view this event is after midnight and before sunrise both Saturday and Sunday nights.

The meteor shower is made up of particles that crumbled away from the 26 kilometre (16 mile) wide comet as it zooms in and out of the inner Solar System.
-The meteor shower is more visible from the Northern Hemisphere and some mid-southern latitudes, so people in the United States will have a prime view.
High pressure over the Upper Mississippi River Valley will aid in clear, overnight skies and comfortable low temperatures for mid-Missouri in the middle 60s. Scientists from NASA also said that camping out in the country can triple the amount of visible meteors.
The comet whose tail creates the Perseus shower is called 109P/Swift-Tuttle, and is named after the USA astronomers Lewis Swift and Horace Tuttle, who discovered it in 1862.
It takes 20 minutes pretty much for your eyes to adjust to the dark and then you'll say oh there's more of them now. No.
