|The 'meteor shower' is a huge phenomenon!!|
They're called the Perseid's and are actually part of the tail of the comet Swift-Tuttle. they're a yearly occurrence and last for about a month or so.. From mid July I think, with the peak activity happening around the 10th August.. You certainly don't need a telescope to watch them, they are easily visible to the naked eye...
Every August finds us lying on the trampoline watching out for 'shooting stars'..
