It's early August, which means the annual Perseid meteor shower is active, and will be until Aug. 24.
Some 2019 Perseids, as seen from Macedonia.
The world-famous meteor shower arrives this time every year, peaking in mid-August.
This meteor shower is a prolific meteor shower.
To properly witness the meteor shower, residents and citizens should look to the northeast horizon of the sky from midnight of August 12 until the dawn of August 13.
Even though early Wednesday is prime time for the Perseid meteors, both NASA and the AMS say viewers may be also able to see some showers outside of that window - potentially earlier in the night on Wednesday as well as in the days leading up to and out of the peak.
They are also brighter than even the brightest stars visible in the northern hemisphere - and will provide an unbelievable show if you are up to see them. Viewed from Earth, the flaming dust and debris of meteor showers looks like "fireballs" or "falling stars" streaking across the night sky.
Generally speaking, meteors from the Perseids are visible from the middle of July to late August every year.
The park rangers note that bright lights and even the moon (which will be at last quarter phase and will rise shortly after midnight to create unwanted brightness with its light) can make it hard to see the stars.
Gary Diamond of the Royal Astronomical Society says this will be the only chance this year to catch the peak of the Perseid meteor shower.
For best viewing conditions, it is recommended to find a dark spot outdoors that is distanced from potential light or light pollution if possible.
If 2 a.m.is too late, any time after moonrise will do, writes CNET's Eric Mack, your eyes will need about 20 minutes to adjust to the nighttime sky before you'll start spotting "shooting stars". If you want to practice to be an advanced meteor spotter, locate Perseus and try focusing there while you watch.
Can we see it in India???
NASA's official Facebook will be live streaming the meteor shower.
"The Perseids are a very good meteor shower with good rates in bright meteors, and it occurs on August evenings when the temperature is more conducive to people being outdoors", Bill Cooke, the lead for NASA's Meteoroid Environment Office, told Space.com.
