Where to watch the Perseid meteor shower live stream if the weather ruins your view

The first total eclipse of the sun in 99 years that will cover parts of the nation from the Pacific to Atlantic is on August 21, but for space buffs, tonight brings a different kind of awe. Light pollution can make it more hard to see the shower.

A meteor shower is in fact small chunk of a single, large comet falling into Earth's atmosphere.

But experts have warned that with the moon at three-quarters full, it may make it harder this year to spot the meteors as they fly past.

While Saturday night is prime viewing time for the Perseid meteor shower, there's still time to catch it another night - according to National Geographic, the annual event is thanks to the Earth's entrance into a trail of debris left behind by the Swift-Tuttle comet.

Jebel Shams and Jebel Akhdar are the best places to watch the shower because of the low rate of light pollution and clear sky-view without any urban light pollution.

With only a few clouds in the forecast tonight, some of us could see a few meteors streaking across the Valley. Still, the chance to see at least one meteor every other minute is pretty cool, so find some time Saturday night or Sunday morning to suss it out. "You want to get away from bright lights of the city, so if you can go out into the countryside somewhere, maybe up north, where the sky is really dark, you'll be able to see shooting stars and more meteors".

Even if your attempts to view the Perseid showers are stymied, do not be too disappointed.

However, "The Perseids will be a little more hard to see due to the presence of the moon, which will be three-quarters full and will rise shortly before the shower hits its peak", Space.com quoted Cooke.
