According to NASA, under the optimal conditions an average of 100 - 150 meteors will be visible per hour.
In order to see the phenomenon often referred to as "shooting stars" look for a spot with little light contamination. Find a spot where the moon is covered, by a building or trees. Wait about a half an hour to see some activity and don’t forget to make a wish!
Shooting stars, or meteors are particles of rocks, metal or ice in space. When they fall towards Earth as a result of gravity, as they enter atmosphere their light can be seen from earth.
