This week you will be treated to something spectacular as the Perseid Meteor Shower is reaching its peak. Wednesday evening promises to be sensational, it may even be possible to see between 60-100 meteors an hour! Here in the Brecon Beacons we have plenty of places to watch it – see our top 10 places to go stargazing.
The Perseid Meteor shower is something that happens every year between July and August.
The best time to view the shower is any time after 10pm – so wrap up warm, pack a flask and some snacks and head for the hills – this is a sky shower you do not want to miss!
