The Perseid meteor shower will peak this weekend, primarily on Sunday and Monday mornings.

From midnight to just before dawn, up to 50-70 meteors per hour will likely be seen. Sunday morning is looking like the better of the two days to view in Mid-Missouri as we should have mainly clear skies.

There is no general direction you should look at to view the meteor shower. The meteors will be streaking through the entire sky, but it's best to view the shower far away from city lights.
