MILWAUKEE -- If you're looking for a rare and spectacular viewing, the Perseid meteor shower will be visible this weekend.
Experts say that the show will take place on the nights of August 11-13 with about 6-70 meteors falling each hour during the peak hours. Back in 2016, an outburst of 150-200 meteors fell each hour.
These meteors are the size of a grain of sand, but the enter the atmosphere at 37 miles per second, allowing them to become a fireball of light.
Experts say that you should go out and find a dark place or suburb, let your eyes adjust to the dark for around 30 minutes and stargaze.
