There was a colorful photo of a meteor shower Perseids

Stargazers set for spectacular treat this weekend

As for the forecast goes, we could see some cloud cover Sunday night which will make star gazing and meteor viewing "ok" but, early Monday morning we will have crystal clear conditions to see them! The green color was created, at least in part, by the meteor's gas glowing as it vaporized.

HOWshould you watch the shower?

The Perseid Meteor Shower will peak on the nights of August 11-12 and August 12-13. Some of them intersect with the earth due to their colliding trajectories. The smallest particles, the size of a grain of sand, burn up in earth's atmosphere, forming a star rain. Majority burn so hot that they disintegrate as they enter Earth's atmosphere.

The Perseids are dust and debris from the Comet Swift-Tuttle, AccuWeather explains. It is said the Perseid shower commemorates the time when Zeus visited Danae, the mother of Perseus, in a shower of gold. A meteor shower is best seen far away from urban areas.
