LAKE MEAD NRA, NV - AUGUST 12: Perseid meteors fall as a satellite passes across the sky early August 12, 2008 near Rogers Spring in the Lake Mead National Recreation Area, Nevada. The meteor display, known as the Perseid shower because it appears to radiate from the constellation Perseus in the northeastern sky, is a result of Earth's orbit passing through debris from the comet Swift-Tuttle. Tuesday morning was considered the peak of the shower, which is visible every August. (credit: Ethan Miller/Getty Images)

NORTH TEXAS (CBSDFW.COM) - Nature’s fireworks are filling the skies tonight as the Perseid meteor shower hits its peak.

It’s the ‘Fireball Champion’ of all annual meteor showers, according to NASA.

Sky watchers can expect to see as many as 100 meteors zip through the sky per hour, NASA officials said.
