Its that time of year again, and they are starting to come more frequent now and will continue to do so until the peak on the 14th august when there is predicted to be approx 90 per hour !!!!
Anyone unsure of where to find them, Find the constellation cassiopea ( big w) and the metiors originate just to the left above the constellation perseus.
Dont make the common misconception that it will be like a firework display though, you may have to stand and wait to see even one but you may be lucky and see five in the space of a minute, they are very random, its just a case of patience.
I spotted five in roughly half hour a few evenings ago when imaging andromeda.
