The Perseids meteor shower will be visible nearly all over the world - but will be best seen in the northern hemisphere.

This picture taken on August 12, 2017 shows a couple enjoying Perseid meteor along the Milky Way illuminating the dark sky near Comillas, Cantabria community, northern Spain, during the "Perseids" meteor shower.

According to Cook, the moon will be near a new moon, and will be crescent, setting before the Perseid show, underway after midnight.

NFL preseason sees kneeling, raised fists, during national anthem
Kaepernick applauded the Dolphins players shortly after the display for their protest of "systemic oppression". Jefferson, Jackson and Brown were among the Seahawks players who sat during the anthem last season.

The Comet Swift-Tuttle is the largest solar system object to pass close to the Earth repeatedly, according to NASA. During outburst years (such as in 2016) the rate can be between 150-200 meteors an hour.

Anushka Sharma photographed with Indian cricket team; gets trolled
On Tuesday, BCCI posted a group photo of the Indian cricket team along with captain Virat Kohli's wife Anushka Sharma on Twitter. Doesn't this kind of function to be an official one? She can be seen standing in the middle of the picture with Virat.

But unlike lots of meteor showers, which only happen on a night or so, the Perseids is actually spread out over a number of nights.

Will you be watching the meteor shower?

It can take about 30 minutes for your eyes to adjust to the dark, and Cooke said the longer you wait, the more you'll see. Look for the constellation Perseus in the northeastern portion of the sky.

Emery expects tough Premier League debut against City
Emery could not have been handed a more hard start to life at Arsenal with a trip to Chelsea following on from the visit of City. Ahead of them could be the exciting triumvirate of Mesut Ozil, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Of course, the one other thing you need to view the meteors is clear skies, and we may have those. "So don't rush the process".
