The 2016 Perseid meteor shower will peak late tonight, and if you can't watch it in person, a plethora of live webcasts have you covered.

Earth has been passing through the trail of Comet Swift-Tuttle for the past few weeks, and will reach the heart of the debris — causing a peak rate of meteors burning up in Earth's atmosphere — overnight tonight, Aug. 11-12.

If you're in the Northern Hemisphere, head outside after the moon sets (around 12-1 a.m. depending on your location) for the ultimate shooting-star views.
