"This year, the moon will be near new moon. It will be a crescent, which means it will set before the Perseid show gets underway after midnight," Cooke said. "The moon is very favorable for the Perseids this year, and that'll make the Perseids probably the best shower of 2018 for people
who want to go out and view it.”
When to see the Perseid meteor shower
You’ll be able to catch the popular meteor shower as Earth passes through the path of Comet Swift-Tuttle (July 17 to Aug. 24), but if you want the best views, it’s all about catching it at peak time. And according to Astronomy magazine and NASA’s Bill Cooke:,the predawn hours of August 13 will be ideal.
