Where and when in Ukraine it is best to watch the Perseid

The first total eclipse of the sun in 99 years that will cover parts of the nation from the Pacific to Atlantic is on August 21, but for space buffs, tonight brings a different kind of awe.

Perseids are bits of the comet Swift-Tuttle and often create the most awesome meteor shower of the year.

The annual Perseids is predicted to be one of the most spectacular shows of the year - but don't worry if you're missing out tonight, the display is expected to dazzle the skies for a whole week. The space agency stated that they are expecting 150 meteors per hour, which is 10 times smaller than the Leonid meteor storms of the late 1990s and early 2000s. The moon's glow will be especially bright this year.

But while viewing meteors may be more hard this year, enterprising viewers who trek out to rural or suburban areas with less light pollution can still see some meteors.

A meteor shower is in fact small chunk of a single, large comet falling into Earth's atmosphere.

Every year in the period from 17 to 28 August the Earth passes through the debris stream of comet swift-Tuttle.

Bill Wojcik, a meteorologist for the National Weather Service in Boise, said Treasure Valley residents should have a good view of the meteor shower, though clouds could interfere. In fact, the meteors which we see nearly certainly broke off from Swift-Tuttle during its 1862 visit and not the 1992 visit.

Even if your attempts to view the Perseid showers are stymied, do not be too disappointed.
