Watch the Perseid meteor shower from your backyard tonight

(KUTV) — Shooting stars will be covering the sky tonight.

The Perseid meteor shower can be seen from Monday night to Tuesday morning in the Northern Hemisphere, according to the American Meteor Society.

At its peak, 100 meteors will fly across the sky per hour,AccuWeather Astronomy Blogger Dave Samheuhel reported.

“Perseids are not only numerous, they are beautiful. Most of the meteors leave a glittering trail as they pass,” Samuhel said. “They are multi-colored and many are bright.”
