One of the years biggest and most stunning meteor showers will be visible throughout this month.

The meteor shower will peak between Thursday 11th and Saturday 13th August and scientists say it could be better than ever.

Whats the best way watch the meteor shower ?

Dress accordingly as August evenings can get quite chilly.

Make observing meteors as enjoyable as possible by lying on a reclining chair or lounger, or just put a blanket on the floor, along with some food and drink.

You do not need to look in any particular direction as meteors appear randomly anywhere in the sky.

The most important thing is to be able to keep looking up filling your gaze with as much sky as possible, for as long as possible.

Where to watch a meteor shower ?

Find an area outside which has a wide view of the sky and away from bright lights.

You want your view of the sky to be as light-free as possible to improve your chances of seeing more meteors.

Also allow a few minutes for your eyes to adapt to the dark; you will then be able to see the fainter meteors which are more common.
