View tips from our experts
- Look for darkness – this could be in a rural area, or if you can’t get to a rural location, look at the darkest part of the sky wherever you are.
- Patience – Just because there is an average number of meteors does not mean you will see that number of meteors per hour.
- Leave your phone inside. Looking at the device before heading up to the sky could ruin your innate night vision.
- Get comfortable – pack your clothes and drink something warm if necessary while you wait for the show.
