It's not expected that any of the meteors from the Perseid shower will hit the ground on Earth.
"To be honest, it's not a good year" for the Perseids, said Robert Massey, acting executive director of the Royal Astronomical Society (RAS) in London. This happens every year on a very predictable schedule, beginning about July 17 until around September 1, with the peak in August, according to Sky & Telescope.
The best time to spot the display is between 1am and dawn twilight.
The best place to view the shower is well away from city or street lights and somewhere where you're shadowed from the moon's glare.
Astronomy Ireland advise that people should allow 20 minutes for your eyes become accustomed to the dark.
What makes this meteor shower truly fantastic is the fact that it is packed with up to 100 meteors per hour.
