By  | 

ROANOKE, Va. (WDBJ7) The Perseid Meteor Shower will peak this weekend, August 12-13.

There will be an estimated 50-80 meteors per hour.

The moon will be three-quarters full which will wash out the fainter meteors. It will also be partly cloudy in our region causing some to be hidden.

The best time to look will be after midnight until just before sunrise.

For best views, look to the northeast.
