The Perseids are a prolific summer meteor shower, peaking in mid-August. Reaching over 60 meteors an hour, they are one of the most spectacular naked eye astronomical events of the year. Whilst this year’s peak coincides with a full moon, we’re still optimistic that they’ll put on a good show!

Please note that this has already taken place on 12/08/2022
