This shower can typically produce about 20 meteors per hour. This year, the full Hunter’s moon will be shining brightly Wednesday night. The moonlight will dim out the meteors. The Miami Valley will also be dealing with scattered clouds and a few showers.

Don’t forget to give your eyes about ten minutes to adjust to the darkness. You also might see a few showers in the following days because it is active until November.
