This weekend's night sky will – to the naked, Earth-bound eye – be filled with shooting stars for annual Perseid meteor shower, however only half the usual number of shooting stars will be seen during the peak.Organizers of various stargazing tours are bracing themselves for the moon's interference in the visibility of the shooting stars.The meteor shower – which is named after the point it appears to emerge from in the night sky, the Perseus constellation – is a recurring phenomenon.Fadlallah said she was well aware of the potential problems with the brighter-than-desired moon, but said she wasn't too worried.For the best chance of getting a good view of the shower, it's important to get up in the mountains, NDU's Gebran explained.Even if the radiant moon happens to block some of the Perseid glory, the celestial event will still be worth a look, according to Cedars Ground Campsite's Assaf.
