This year's show is predicted to be an "average" show by Perseid standards, with as many as 50-60 meteors per hour at peak.
The comet that left the Perseid meteor stream is a piece of dirty ice about 26km in diameter called 109P/Swift-Tuttle.
According to Space, this August during the peak, there should be about 60 to 70 meteors per hour, although a year ago saw about 80 an hour.
Travelling at a speedy 37 miles a second, they come from the direction of the constellation Perseus.

However, you can also catch the odd meteor before and after these dates. And if you're intrepid enough to travel to a dark sky park, here are some of the absolute best in the United States.
They should start whizzing across the sky before midnight, but the best displays will be in the hours before dawn. "As long as you have clear skies and you're away from the city, you should have a good show". NASA recommends about 45 minutes for your eyes to adjust to the darkness.
