The group will certainly be heading out for the Perseid meteor shower. The peak days will be Saturday night and Sunday night.
StormCenter 2 Severe Weather Specialist Brad Spakowitz says the meteors are remnants of Comet Swift-Tuttle.
The meteor shower started to break out into the night sky around mid-July and will carry on through to the last week of August. "The best instrument to use for any meteor shower is the unaided human eye, because you have the widest possible field of view".
If you know your constellations, look for Perseus in the northern sky, soon after sunset this time of year. Because of this, meteor rates could be as high as 200 per hour. They can reach between 3,000 and 10,000 degrees Fahrenheit during this shower.
This year forecasters say we could see anywhere from 60-70 meteors per hour but during outburst years (like 2016) the rate can be between 150-200 meteors per hour.
The comet itself will come extremely close to Earth in a "near-miss" in 2126. It can take up to 45 minutes for your eyes to adjust to the darkness so that you can best see the faint, quick streaks from the meteor shower, so be patient. As they burn, they create a bright burst of light across the sky - traveling at about 37 miles-per-second.
Daytime heating caused some instability to our north this afternoon with showers and thunderstorms mostly in the U.P. but a few showers did make their way into Northeast Wisconsin. Scientists from NASA also said that camping out in the country can triple the amount of visible meteors.
And don't forget to grab your camera before you head out.
