While there have already been quite a few meteor showers this year, we have the perfect one happening this summer and you’ll want to know where to watch.

The Perseid Meteor Shower takes place every year from July to August. The peak of the meteor shower occurs from August 12 to August 13. With a new moon in 2018, the night sky will be superb conditions to catch shooting stars.
