Perseids Meteor Shower

Tonight and tomorrow marks the height of the Perseids meteor shower, as the Earth passes through the debris left by comet Swift-Tuttle. Unfortunately, while some parts of the northern hemisphere will witness a fantastic display thanks to a waxing crescent moon, a dismal weather forecast means its unlikely you’ll see much from Papworth!
