MADISON, WI (WKOW) -- -

The forecast is calling for a mainly clear sky Friday night which is good news for stargazers.

Look to the sky tonight to see the annual Perseid Meteor Shower.  This meteor shower does occur every year - usually in early August.  NASA says astronomers are expecting up to 150 meteors per hour.  

The peak time to view is just before dawn Saturday morning, so, between 5-5:40am.
