"Even if the viewing conditions aren't the best, you're likely to spot some meteors during the maximum nights of the Perseid meteor shower each year".
A new moon on August 11, just night before the shower's peak, means that the moon won't be bright enough to wash out the meteors.
"The moon is very favorable for the Perseids this year, and that'll make the Perseids probably the best shower of 2018 for people who want to go out and view it", Cooke told Space.com.
Why does this occur every summer? Each year in August the Perseids appear as the Earth travels through trails of debris caused by the ancient comet Swift-Tuttle, which orbits the sun every 133 years.
This early activity may be a good omen for the nights ahead, especially August 11th-13th when Earth is expected to pass through the densest part of the comet's debris zone.
The shower gets it's name from Perseus where the shower originates. Head to a dark area in the suburbs or countryside, lay down a blanket, bring some snacks and enjoy the celestial show.
Strong quake again hits Indonesia's Lombok island Sunday's quake also sent some 2,500 people to hospital with serious injuries and drove more than 156,000 people from their homes. The US Geological Survey said the quake, felt on the nearby holiday island of Bali, measured 5.9 on the Richter scale.
Unfortunately the earth will pass through the thickest part of the dust field during the day on Friday and will not be visible but at night there will be enough debris to see the light show.
"People often ask when we can see it in the city, and to be honest you may not see it at all", Nichols said. The best viewing time: between midnight and dawn, when more than 50 meteors per hour will streak across the night sky.
During the peak, skywatchers should be able to see the most meteors in the shortest amount of time.
EarthSky also says that it is important to know that all meteors come from a single point in the sky.
