Perseid meteor shower peaks Sunday night

60-70 meteors per hour visible

By Chris Michaels - Meteorologist

ROANOKE, Va. - The Perseid meteor shower peaks late Sunday night and early Monday morning. Leftover clouds from a few storms will make it tough for a few of us to see.

If you do have a break in the clouds, be sure to look toward the north and northeast. Allow your eyes some time to adjust. Under ideal conditions, we could see anywhere from 60 to 70 meteors per hour. With the moon entering its new phase, there's less moonlight to get in the way of the show.

If clouds are in the way for you, modern day technology will come in handy. NASA will have live feeds that you can find here.
