All Eyes on The Weekend Sky for Perseid Meteor Shower

The solar eclipse may still be more than a week away, but it's not the only celestial event.

This weekend is the peak of the Perseid meteor shower. NASA scientists say the light show is expected to have more falling stars per hour than average, but that increase is expected to be canceled out by the brightness of the moon. 

 The Perseid meteor shower happens every July and August when Earth passes through debris left behind by the comet Swift-Tuttle.
