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.
The famous Perseids meteor shower will light up the night sky in the country on August 12 and 13. The best views will come before dawn on the 13th, Astronomy magazine predicts.
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.
But don't worry. The Comet Swift-Tuttle isn't going to crash into the Earth any time soon, if at all, NASA says.
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.

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".
