The annual Perseid meteor shower is expected to peak Monday night in Oklahoma's western sky.
NASA representatives say the meteoroids are from a trail left by the Swift-Tuttle comet and shine as bright as planets Jupiter and Venus.
Fragments of the comet will burn up as they enter Earth's atmosphere, leaving streaks of light across the sky.
The Perseid meteor shower produces more fireballs than any other meteor shower.
The National Weather Service recommends getting out of the city lights for the best view of the meteor shower.
