Missouri skies are expected to be clear this weekend during the peak of the Perseid Meteor Shower.

Star gazers will be able to see between 70 to 150 meteors per hour, depending on the viewers location.

The best viewing will be outside of city limits looking north between 11:00 PM and 4 AM Saturday and Sunday.  Space.com reports the later a viewer watches the better.

A near new moon will allow for more darkness to make viewing easier.
