Watch Perseid Meteor Shower 2018 Online

The spectacular Perseids meteor shower

Moonless nights will make the spectacle of the annual Perseid meteor shower even more scintillating this weekend for much of the world, and sky watchers are expecting a "great show". But it moves through the densest debris between August 11 and August 13. With the moon in a new phase, the sky will remain exceptionally dark when between 70 and 150 meteors per hour may be seen, depending on one's viewing location.

But clouds and rain across the United Kingdom stopped a lot of British from seeing the celestial wonder.

This is typically one of the best meteor showers viewable from Missouri.

Theatre director Luke John Emmett, from Bath, was also disappointed.

No doubt some of you witnessed the stunning natural display caused by the Perseid meteor shower last night.

The sadness prove too much for the unnamed operator of a Twitter account called WilloTheWisp, who unleashed a trio of exclamation mark-filled sentences in which he raged: 'I wish this cloud would f*** off! "As long as you have clear skies and you're away from the city, you should have a good show".

The best views of the Perseids in Sweden will be in the south of the country, according to website Populär Astronomi. No special equipment is needed, but if you want the best view, it helps to be as far from artificial light as possible.

"The Perseids have been observed for around 2000 years, and are the result of Earth passing through a cloud of dust left behind Comet Swift-Tuttle". The meteors can appear anywhere in the sky, but they look the brightest against the darkest sky, which is straight up.
