This year, astronomers have predicted that it would happen on the nights of August 11, 12 and 13, but, from India, Perseids would appear on August 12 and 13. Scientists promised up to 100 stars per hour. It's the peak of the shower, right, now you'll see most meteors in the shortest amount of time. The Network was published colorful pictures, which depicted the stars from different parts of the world. It has an orbital period of 133 years and it last visited in 1992. The Perseid meteor shower is sparked every August when the Earth passes through a stream of space debris left by comet Swift-Tuttle. The video was made aboard the worldwide space station.

At best, a typical Perseid meteor shower produces 80 to a few hundred meteors per hour. This is what we commonly are able to perceive as a shooting star.

Look off towards the constellation Perseus in the night sky (that's how the meteor shower got its name).

But for a layperson, a strong meteor shower is just a pretty sight.

"The average particle size is that of large sand grains, but some small pea-gravel-size meteors can cause bright fireballs that light up the sky and ground". Majority burn so hot that they disintegrate as they enter Earth's atmosphere.

HOWshould you watch the shower? They are the Perseids, occurring this month and the Geminids that take place in December.
