Perseid Meteor Shower

9th August, 2013

Competition time sky watchers......over the next few nights the Perseid Meteor Shower will be visible in the night skies. It's one of the most spectacular and brightest meteor showers with between 50 and 100 meteors per hour often leaving a trail behind them.

You do not need a telescope to see them and will be best viewed between midnight and dawn on Saturday or Sunday evening.

Post your photos of this meteor shower on our facebook pagel and the best one will win a family ticket to The Milky Way. Photos must be taken on your own camera - proof may be required.
