Every year, our planet passes through a cloud of dust left behind a huge comet, and this year we're passing through from Monday 6 August to Sunday 19 August, but the night of the best and brightest of the meteor shower hitting our atmosphere will be Sunday 12 August!

NASA scientists advise that although they can be seen any time after 10 p.m., the best time to spot a flurry of meteors will be during the darkest part of the night, in the early hours before dawn, from 11 p.m.to first light.

The Perseids reach their peak in the early hours of August 13 when up to 70 per hour should be visible.

The summer meteor shower, Perseid, is in full swing right now and PEAKING tonight/tomorrow morning.

How can you see the Perseids if the weather doesn't cooperate where you are?
No special equipment is needed, and you can look anywhere in the sky!

NASA explained: "All meteors associated with one particular shower have similar orbits, and they all appear to come from the same place in the sky, called the radiant".

The Perseid meteors are bits and pieces of space rock debris broken off from Comet Swift-Tuttle as it barrels around the Sun every 133 years.

Lucky observers may see the occasional meteor sailing across the sky for several seconds, leaving behind a trail of glowing smoke. The phase of the moon (new moon) will make viewing even better, because the light from the moon will not ruined any visibility of the shooting stars.
