If you look up at the sky at just the right time on Tuesday, you’ll be treated to quite the light show.

The Perseid Meteor Shower peaks this week.

The best time to spot the Perseids is in the pre-dawn hours on Aug. 12, but midnight to dawn any morning this week or next should produce a few meteors, including an occasional fireball, according to NASA.

To see the meteors, find a dark area away from city lights, point yourself north, and look up at the sky.
