A meteor shower is set to light up the sky tonight with up to 20 shooting stars visible per hour. The meteors are believed to be caused when our planet crosses the orbital path of Comet 96P/Machholz. The display peaks on the 28 to 29 July but is active from 12 July to 23 August. Check the cloud forecast for the local area and pick a time when it’s going to be clear. However, if the cloud cover is complete it might not be possible to see anything.
