Though the Perseid meteor shower is almost entirely obscured by a full moon, the best time to see an occasional streaking light in the sky is between 12 a.m. and 6 a.m., according to Monrovia astronomer Morris Jones.
Jones, who co-founded the Old Town Sidewalk Astronomers, said the ideal time for meteor sightings is 2 a.m., so if you're reading this at publication time, you still have a shot. If you want to see it through NASA's lens, go here.
Perseid is a meteor shower that happens annually and has been observed for the last 2,000 years, according to the NASA website. It is related to the comet "Swift-Tuttle," which orbits the sun every 133 years, the website says.
