The annual Perseids is predicted to be one of the most spectacular shows of the year – but don’t worry if you’re missing out tonight, the display is expected to dazzle the skies for a whole week.
The BBC Weather centre said it would peak from 23:00 until 04:00 and it could be seen in most parts of the UK.
Astronomers says hundreds of meteors will streak across the sky in a display that may be visible around the world.
The Perseid meteor shower occurs every July and August as the planet passes debris from the Swift-Tuttle comet.
But experts say the Perseids could be harder to see this year as the Moon will be three-quarters full.
