If you see a break in the clouds this weekend, put your eyes to the sky on the nights of Saturday, August 11 through Monday, August 13 for the annual Perseid meteor shower. The show is expected to be even more vibrant this year, thanks to a new moon giving us a darker sky.

If you're away from city lights, you can see 60 to 100 meteors per hour, making this one of the more popular meteor showers to watch. The shower is visible from all of Alaska during the darkest part of the night, as long as you're away from city lights.
