The annual Perseid meteor shower will hit its peak in the pre-dawn hours of August 13, just a day after the full moon. According to PAGASA, skygazers could expect 15 meteors per hour if the sky is clear.
Luckily, the sky is quite clear now.
The Perseid meteor shower has been observed for about 2000 years, with the earliest information on this meteor shower coming from the Far East. Some Catholics refer to the Perseids as the "tears of St. Lawrence", since 10 August is the date of that saint's martyrdom. – Wikipedia
