"Increase the exposure time of camera to get a good picture", Dr Beshir Marzouk, Astronomer expert at Qatar Calendar House said.
Even so, the Perseids have some super bright meteors that are sure to put on a spectacular show if you catch a livestream, no matter how desperate the Moon is for attention.
"During a good Perseid shower under ideal conditions you can see about one meteor per minute", Cooke said.
Tadros pointed out that the astronomical phenomenon can be seen with the naked eye and does not have any adverse effect on human health, or on the planet in general. However, this year the summertime meteor shower coincides with the nearly full moon (it was full August 7 and is now a bright, waning gibbous this weekend), which could impact seeing as many shooting stars. The moon will be waning and will still be about 80% of the brightness of the full moon.
"Aside from the Perseids, there are almost 500 other meteor showers throughout the year", says meteor astronomer and CAMS principal investigator Peter Jenniskens of the SETI Institute.
The meteor shower happens as the Earth passes through debris left behind from the comet Swift-Tuttle every August. However, this makes it more hard to view the meteor shower because of the moon's glare.
Californians and those in the West will likely have the best view of the show, according to the Weather Channel, with clear skies predicted during the shower's peak.
Stargazers should find an area away from light pollution, and allow about 30 minutes for your eyes to adjust to the dark.
A bright moon typically reduces the number of visible meteors by half.
It gets its name from the constellation Perseus as it looks like it originates at the same point in the sky as the constellation. Did you know that each Perseid meteor travels at 132,000 miles per hour?!
The window for this year's shower began on July 17, but the meteors are expected to be most frequent from Friday through Sunday. Typical rates are about 80 meteors an hour, but in outburst years, as was the case last year, the rate can be between 150-200 meteors an hour. Hence, they rarely reach the Earth and when they do, it is only small parts that no one realises, Sheikh Salman said. The meteors are actually tiny dust and particles from the tail of the comet as it orbits around the sun.
