If you are viewing from outside a city centre, you should be able to see as much as 60 to 100 meteors per hour! Ranging from light, short streaks too long, and sometimes noisy, fireballs, this show is always a crowd pleaser usually creating many smiling faces.
This year viewing conditions should be optimal with the waxing crescent moon setting soon after total darkness falls mid-evening.
AWB is also asking you to share your meteor counts with us. How many shooting stars will you see?
Let us know each day by using our poll counters on this page below and also find out how your counts compare to others.
