The Perseid meteor shower is expected to peak before dawn on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, according to WRAL-TV.
The shower has produced up to 100 meteors an hour at 37 miles per second in past years.
The best time for viewing should be between midnight and a few hours before sunrise during those days. The shower should be visible, but may be hard to see in North Carolina.
The Supermoon is set to make a second appearance on Sunday, and this time around experts say it will be one of the year’s largest and brightest full moons.
A supermoon isn’t just any old full moon — it only happens when the moon becomes full on the same day as its perigree, which is the point in its orbit when it’s closest to Earth.
