The annual Perseid meteor shower is expected to put on a dazzling sky show.
Astronomers say up to 100 meteors per hour are expected to streak across the sky during the shower's peak.
In North America, the best time to watch is before dawn Wednesday.
The Perseid shower occurs every summer when the Earth's orbit
crosses the path of debris thrown off by Comet Swift-Tuttle.
