During the Perseid meteor showers, most visible across the USA on Sunday, Aug. 12, and Monday, Aug. 13, people may witness 50 to 100 meteors per hour in clear, summer night skies.

You won't have to worry about one bonking you on the head - most of the meteors in the Perseid shower are far too small for that.

With a "new moon" in place, the sky will extra dark for the astrological show.

What is the Perseid Meteor Shower?

"Preparations have been finalised where visitors can lay back and relax to watch the complete Perseid Meteor Shower from our desert Majlis setting, without the need or use of any special equipment or telescopes, though visitors are free to choose whether or not to bring one", said Alsuwaidi. Best of all, constellations and the Milky Way should be highly visible due to a New Moon on August 11, meaning there will not be as much light to drown out the stars.

For skywatchers in the northern hemisphere, experts recommend watching for the meteor shower after 10 pm local time, but it will be at its best during the early hours of dawn. For the best viewing, make sure you get away from city lights.

So when is the Perseid meteor shower?

The Perseids appear at about this time every year when Earth ventures through pieces of debris left behind by the ancient comet Swift-Tuttle.

Just bear in mind you will not see as many shooting stars this early as you would during the peak. Along with the showers, there's also a chance stargazers will catch a view of the Milky Way stretching from the south, along with Saturn and Mars. Every August the Earth ploughs through the orbit of this comet sweeping up this dust at a closing speed of over 100,000 miles per hour and the tiny particles vaporise instantly from friction with the upper atmosphere.

The best viewing will be in a dark location without any light pollution.

Each time Swift-Tuttle passes through the warmth of the inner solar system, its frozen, 16-mile-wide nucleus releases debris along the comet's path - through which the Earth passes each summer. This will greatly increase the number of meteors seen. Our advice? Bring a rug, a flask of tea (or, you know, whiskey - pick your poison) and some insect repellent, and get gazing.
