The Perseid Meteor Shower is always a good show, but this year, NASA scientists expect it to be better than ever before.

Typically, the shower sends between 50 and 100 meteors per hour shooting through the sky, but the 2016 show will be an “outburst” featuring up to 200 meteors per hour, a story from WTMJ reads.

The show usually runs for a couple of days as the earth passes through Comet Swift Tuttle, the story continues, and the meteors are particles left behind.

Ideal viewing, of course, involves clear skies, and residents of Racine County are in luck; a map from the National Weather Service indicates relatively cloud-free viewing Thursday night when meteor activity is expected to be highest.
