According to NASA, the Perseids are considered the best meteor shower of the year.
This weekend, on both Friday and Saturday night, the Schuylkill Center for Environmental Education is hosting a get together for those who want to watch the "shooting stars."
Stargazers can gather 'round the campfire to enjoy s'mores, use a telescope to see the moon and stars up close and locate constellations using star maps.
Space is limited, so if you want to attend the special event get a ticket sooner rather than later. The price is $15, or $10 for Schuylkill Center members.
On both nights, the meteor shower watch party will kick off at 8 p.m.
Friday, Aug. 9, and Saturday, Aug. 10
8-10 p.m. | $15 per person
