Sky observers in the Northern Hemisphere will get a special treat this Sunday as a “super moon” and meteor showers are expected to happen at the same time.

The annual meteor shower, Perseid, will light up the night sky with as many as 100 shooting stars an hour. The prolific Perseid will be joined by a “super moon,” which occurs when the Earth is at its closest distance to the moon.

The meteor shower will peak between Aug. 10 and Aug. 13, and is expected to last for a week after its peak.

“The best time to see the showers will be at around 2 a.m. in the morning,” Tony Berendsen, an outreach astronomer and founder of Tahoe Star Tours told ABC News today.
