Here's one for the astronomy lovers -- one of the most popular meteor showers of the year will light up the skies in South Jersey next month.

The Perseid meteor shower will reach its maximum intensity on August 13th, according to In The Sky. You can also catch a shooting star every night from the Perseid shower from July 23rd through August 20th.

The maximum rate of meteors you'll be able to see in certain parts of the country is 80. Here in the Atlantic City area, we will see 37 meteors per hour due to the radiant of the shower being so low in the sky above Atlantic City.

The best chance to observe on toe the biggest metro showers of the year is to look at any dark patch of sky. Get ready for a special night of star gazing with a spectacular view over the skies of Atlantic City on August 13th.
