intresteresting so tonight could be your chance to see a shooting star as the Perseid meteor shower lights up the sky.

The Perseid meteor shower gets its name from the constellation Perseus as it appears to originate at the same point in the sky as the constellation. The peak dates to see the Perseid meteor shower is between the 11th & 13th August when up to 100 meteors can be seen every hour.
