Well, the weather is reasonably clear at the moment, so the chances of seeing the shooting stars tonight is quite high.
Hundreds of shooting stars will be visible from across the UK this evening as the annual Perseids meteor shower peaks.
Star-gazers in the Midlands and the North will have the best view of the meteors as the Met Office predicts visibility will be limited across southern England and Scotland because of cloud cover.
The Perseids are being widely anticipated this year as they coincide with a new moon, creating the ideal dark sky conditions, and will also be joined overhead by a bright man-made star, the International Space Station (ISS).
