That's according to the Adler Planetarium in Chicago.

Starting Wednesday night people may see up to 100 meteors per hour as the Earth passes through the dust trail of Comet Swift-Tuttle.

The planetarium says the best time to see the meteor shower will be in the early morning hours Thursday, around 2 a.m., when the skies are dark.

The planetarium says to get the best view spectators should get away from city lights and look northeast.
