The Perseid Meteor Shower is underway

Earth is entering a stream of debris from Comet Swift-Tuttle, source
of the annual Perseid meteor shower.

Worldwide observers are now reporting more than 30 Perseids per hour,
a number that could triple during the weekend when Earth reaches the
heart of the debris zone.

Forecasters recommend looking during the dark hours before dawn,
especially Sunday morning, August 12th, when activity is expected to
be highest.
