The Perseid meteor shower is approaching its annual peak. The highest rates are set to occur on Wednesday night (Aug 12-13), but good rates should also be seen during the nights of Aug 11-12 and Aug 13-14, so do make use of any clear sky that you do get.

Parts of England will witness the International Space Station pass in front of the moon tonight! If you live within the blue band, look up towards the moon a few minutes before 21:50.
