The Perseid Meteor Shower Puts on a Show This Weekend
SHOWER The Perseid meteor shower will light up the sky tonight
13 August, 2018, 08:27
A glorious display of Perseid meteors is set to light up the skies over the United Kingdom tonight - though cloud is forecast in Cumbria.
Although the meteor shower is likely to be most easy to spot from earth on Sunday night, it has been visible since the end of July and will remain so for a further two weeks.
The Perseid meteor shower peaks this weekend and viewing conditions should be spectacular in mid-Missouri.
Reaching its peak visibility this weekend, a number of eager stargazers were dazzled by last night's (11 August) astronomical show, where a number of lovely shooting stars and green lights lit up the sky. Tonight, there will be a few clouds around, but you should still be able to see the meteors! This year the most visible days are projected to be August 11-13, and NASA meteor expert Bill Cooke says the US can expect to see as many as 60 to 70 meteors per hour during the shower's peak.

"Every year in August, we sort of sweep through the leftovers of that comet and the tiny little particles that it left behind enter into the Earth's atmosphere", explains Brar.
Downloading a star-gazing mobile app can also add to the experience of meteor showers.

Others are brighter and can appear to sail across our sky for several seconds, leaving a glowing smoke trail.
