From tonight, the Perseid meteor shower will be reaching its peak, giving you a chance to see a shooting star over the next few evenings.
The Perseids are an annual event, the result of Earth crossing through debris from the tail of comet Swift-Tuttle.
That’s double the usual rate, though some dispute whether this year’s Perseids will be particularly special.
Whatever happens, for the best chance of seeing the show, which is mostly visible in the northern hemisphere, look up at the sky between midnight and dawn on Friday morning.
The shower appears to come from the direction of the constellation Perseus, which gives the meteors their name, but as long as you look away from the bright light of the moon, you should spot them.
