Ready, set, look up! This is the time of year, in the summer, when you will be able to see shooting stars, or meteors.  Officially the Perseid Meteor shower gets underway from now with the peak viewing in August.

The meteor shower comes from the Earth passing through a bunch of ice, organic material, dust, rock which comes from the comet Swift-Tuttle.

On some clear nights, we should be able to see hundreds of “falling stars” each night in August.
