The Perseid meteor shower is one of the astronomic highlights of any year, and luckily for those of us slaving away in front of a computer Monday to Friday, the 2018 Perseid shower falls on a weekend. The meteor show will kick off on Saturday, and peak on Sunday evening into the early hours of Monday.
At its peak on August 12th, meteors will be visible at the rate of around one per minute. Rather luckily, these aren't the kind of meteors that will light up the entire sky and make you think the end times are nigh; Instead, you'll need to plan to be somewhere with minimal cloud cover and light pollution if you want to take advantage.
