Today at 1 pm is the peak of the Perseid Meteor Shower.
Those who wish to actually see the display, which is expected to produce 100-110 meteors an hour, will need to wait til the sun has gone down and also head out of the city, but not too far.
"The best place to be is probably outside the city lights. You don't have to go very far out to actually see more meteors. This year though we do have the Moon involved in the picture. The moon will be rising around midnight or so, which always brightens the background skies so the chance of seeing all the meteors is diminished because of the moon, so predictions are for around 40-50 meteors an hour," said Vance Petriew, President of the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada Regina Centre.
If anyone is concerned about safety there is no danger to anyone.
"The odds of getting hit by them is pretty much zero," explained Petriew, "The meteor showers are actually left over trails from comets so when a comet flies through the solar system it leaves a big long tail. The tail is composed of a lot of gas and mostly a lot of sand so the meteors that impact the upper atmosphere are actually the size of a grain of sand," he added.
Petriew said that the best way to watch them is to just pick an area of the sky and just watch it.
"The Meteors will be all over the sky but if you trace them back in the sky to where they actually come from you'll notice that all the meteors point back to the radiant. The radiant is in the constellation of Perseus which will be rising around midnight in the north east part of the sky," said Petriew.
The Perseid Shower happens every year in August as the Swift-Tuttle Comet journeys around the Sun.
