“Unfortunately, this year’s Perseid peak will witness Worst possible conditions for observers‘, said the NASA astronomer, Bill Cookwho manages Meteor Environment Office at the Marshall Space Flight Center NASA in Huntsville, Alabama, United States.
He added: “Most of us in North America will typically see 50 or 60 meteors per hour, but this year during the normal peak, the full moon will reduce that to 10-20 per hourin best case scenario”.
The moon is brighter than anything else in the night sky. And – therefore – everything will be deleted. Except for the brightest Perseids, because they pass through our atmosphere and burn up high. On the other hand, as the full moon fades, the Perseids will begin to Fades on August 21 and 22will stop completely September 1.

How far Perseid’s sightings really go is still up for debate. controversyCook confirmed.
How do you see a meteor shower?
If it is not cloudy, you will be able to view it from the observation point far from any bright light. Binoculars or binoculars are not recommended due to their small field of view.
The meteors associated with this shower will appear to come from a specific place in the sky: Below and to the left of the first “W” made by the Cassiopeia constellation.
