Huge Perseid meteor shower seen over UK – Telegraph.co.uk

The Perseid meteor shower was seen over parts of the UK last night, giving stargazers the opportunity to spot dozens of shooting stars in the sky.

Meteors are small fragments of debris and dust that enter the atmosphere at high speed, meaning they combust and produce a stream of light which can be seen trailing behind them. 

The Perseid meteor shower, one of the best-known among astrologists, is most visible between mid July and 24 August, with its peak taking place this weekend.
