Before you get too excited about double celestial events, there is some bad news. The bright full moon will likely hinder those hoping to catch a glimpse of the meteor shower.
Meteors are best spotted with a dark sky. Usually, a new moon is best and away from light pollution. In this case, the supermoon won't make good sky-gazing conditions for the Perseids.PERSEID METEOR SHOWER PEAK: WHEN AND WHERE YOU CAN SEE ITThe Perseids are pieces of the comet Swift-Tuttle, and July 17 to Aug.
24 is the most active time for the meteors. The peak this year, when the most meteors will shoot across the sky, is expected to be Aug. 11 to 13.
Unfortunately, the August full moon happens on Aug. 11, which could put a damper on the view.

"Most of us in North America would normally see 50 or 60 meteors per hour," he said, "But this year, during the normal peak, the full Moon will reduce that to 10-20 per hour at best."Thursday's cloud cover forecast by the FOX Forecast Center shows clear sky for the Midwest and Central Plains for the full moon.(FOX Weather) 7 TIPS ON HOW TO PHOTOGRAPH THE MOONThursday's cloud
