Grab your lawn chairs, your telescopes,and look to the stars tonight, as an impressive meteor shower will blanket the night sky.
The Perseid meteor shower will produce a beautiful display of shooting stars this weekend.
According to NASA, these showers come roughly the same time every summer.
But, because the crescent moon, Jupiter, and Venus are lining up during the peak of the show, this year's display is expected to be extra special, as the Earth passes through debris from Comet Swift-Tuttle.
They say there could be as many as 100 per hour, and will be "the best of the year."
