Boyle says the meteors strike the earth's atmosphere at around 134,000 miles per hour, causing long streaks that completely vaporize.

The Perseid meteor shower is visible to the naked eye, so no equipment is necessary. To get a good view, you should first lie down and then look to the northeast, the direction of the meteor shower.
