The Perseids meteor shower peaks during August, and despite some interference from moonlight which will blot out the fainter shooting stars, this impressive display is still well worth a watch, says Argus astronomy expert JONATHAN POWELL.

Its name comes from the point at which the meteors appear to come from - its radiant - in the constellation of Perseus.

It's fairly consistent each year, producing a rich and steady stream of meteors that are fast and bright in the sky, and that leave persistent trains behind them.
