The Perseid meteor shower is one of the brightest and most active meteor showers in the year. It occurs in July and August in the Northern hemisphere making it a summer shower and one of the most popular.

The peak occurs around 12th-13th August.

Like everything in the night sky, the absolute best time to be looking is when the sky is darkest. This occurs around midnight and during the very earliest hours of the morning.

In 2022 the Perseid meteor shower is active between 17 July and 24 August, with the number of meteors increasing every night until it reaches a peak in mid-August, after which it will tail off. This year the peak falls on the night of the 12th and before dawn on 13 August.

This year unfortunately the peak falls around the time of the full Moon, so light conditions will be particularly bad. When watching for meteors, the darker the sky the better.
