The annual Perseid meteor extravaganza kicked off a week ago with good views already being had in the Northern hemisphere. Apparently the next couple of nights are likely to offer the best views with up to 80 meteors an hour. Naturally this all comes caveated with the small print "weather permitting".

Get away from the bright city lights and look up to the sky. Even better, try and get a photograph – though that might just result in you missing them all entirely. The BBC has a report on this year's shower and Wikipedia has more than you'd ever want to know about the Perseids.
