Ready for a shower? How about one outside at night? It's the Perseid meteor shower

The 2014 Perseid meteor shower will peak between Aug. 10 and 13. A waning Gibbous Moon (the Moon's phase after a full moon) may make it harder for observers to see the shower.

This information is compliments of the website: timeanddate.com

Despite this, astronomers suggest that observers try their luck to catch some Perseids before dawn on Aug. 11, 12 and 13.
