The Perseid meteor shower will be at its peak this weekend. Well, on the night between the 13th to the 14th actually, but if you have to get up early in the morning for work,the weekend should be good enough. There may be as many as sixty meteors per hour.
So get some blankets or a deck chair, choose a spot that's as dark as possible and has a clear view of the skies, to the northeast if possible. After midnight is the best time for viewing, but you will probably get to see meteors even earlier than that. Enjoy.
