On Earth see the peak of the meteor shower of Perseids

According to the American Meteor Society lists 12 different annual meteor showers that will be visible on Earth.

Peak meteor shower this year could be observed in the night from 12 to 13 August.

"I think that everybody should see this", said Miralem Mehic, a Bosnian from an global group of star gazers who watched the light show at the Sand Pyramids - an area of naturally occurring sand columns - near the town of Foca.

Separately, the NDAA authorizes spending $7.6 billion for 77 F-35 Joint Strike Fighter jets, made by Lockheed Martin Corp. Besides setting policy and spending levels, the bill weakens a bid to clamp down on Chinese telecom company ZTE.

PERSEID METEOR SHOWER: The dry air aloft should actually help us out with less hazy viewing conditions for the Perseid Meteor Shower. Earlier in the night, there will be fewer ones, but the ones that appear will have longer tails as they graze along more of the atmosphere. It is the largest object known to pass by Earth repeatedly. The last time it passed nearby was in 1992. "Thus, it is less likely that you would miss them", says Regina Rudawska, an expert on small solar system bodies at the European Space Agency's European Space Research and Technology Centre at Noordwijk in the Netherlands. It contains ice and gas.

Watching the shower doesn't require any special equipment, but viewers should stay find a spot away from artificial light, and NASA recommends allowing about 30 minutes without light-including your smartphone!-for your eyes to adjust to the dark. The best time to view is after midnight each night.
