When August comes around, the best sky show of the year is also on its way. The Perseids are an annual meteor shower. What's it all about and how can you see it?

The August Perseid meteor shower is usually one of the brightest of the year. But visibility will be greatly hampered by something that is often a spectacle of its own - a very bright full moon.

For example, Space.com says
Quote
This year, the shower will reach its peak on Aug. 12 and 13, according to the American Meteor Society (AMS).

Meanwhile, the August full moon, also known as the Sturgeon Moon, will reach its peak on Aug. 11 at 9:35 p.m. EDT (0101 GMT) and will appear nearly full the night before and the night after. This month's full moon also happens to be 2022's last supermoon, which occurs when the moon makes its closest approach to Earth at the same time that it's full, making it appear especially large and bright in the night sky.
