The Perseid meteor shower peaks tomorrow night. However, with the full moon on Saturday, moonlight will diminish the display somewhat. It’ll still be worth going out, though, as the Perseids are known for bright fireballs, and some should be visible despite the moonlight. The later you can stay out the better!
