The Perseid meteor shower peak happens from August 11-13 with the night of August 12-13 expected to be the best time to watch, according to Faherty.
The comet Swift-Tuttle is the largest object that repeatedly passes earth.
So how do you see it? Better still, viewing conditions this time around are particularly ideal - due to a new moon. "You can look anywhere you want to-even directly overhead", explained Jones.
Perseid meteors tend to strengthen in number as late night deepens into midnight, and typically produce the most meteors in the wee hours before dawn.
When is the best time to see the meteor shower?
The Perseids appear to emanate from between the constellations Perseus and Cassiopeia, but to catch them there's really no need to worry about which direction you're looking. It's a rich meteor shower, and it's steady.
However, you can also catch the odd meteor before and after these dates.
If you live in the middle of city lights, consider heading somewhere in the suburbs or countryside to get a better view.
"Relax, be patient, and let your eyes adapt to the darkness", Kelly Beatty, Sky & Telescope senior editor said in a statement.
The Perseid shower is named after the constellation of Perseus. One key tip is to try to get away from city lights. But the most spectacular long-lasting meteors, known as "Earthgrazers", can be seen when the radiant is still low above the horizon.
The Perseid meteor shower occurs every year when the Earth passes through the dust and debris left behind by the Comet Swift-Tuttle, bringing pieces of the comet into the upper atmosphere that light up the sky as they burn up.
Keen stargazers may have already spotted one or two streaking meteors since around mid-July when the Perseids started to appear.
