Perseid meteor shower: A picturesque night for star gazers in India

August is a big month for stargazers and astronomy fans, but this weekend's meteor shower may leave a little bit to be desired. While this year's display of night sky fireworks may be slightly obscured by a particularly bright moon, star gazers can still expect to see dozens of stars streaking across our skies.

One awe-inspired stargazer said: "Experiencing my first ever Perseid Meteor Shower and actually seeing stars in this way is just attractive and wow".

She wrote: "When the city lights and clouds ruined the Perseid meteor shower for you". "So tonight will be probably the best chance of seeing them if you missed them last night".

The phenomenon is caused by debris from the tail of the Swift-Tuttle comet entering the Earth's atmosphere and burning up, appearing as bright streaks of light crossing the sky.

Around 80 each hour came speeding down at 36 miles per second, a dream for photographers as much of the country had clear skies.

These factors could be caused by the weather, or too much brightness from the moon - which is said to be the event's biggest hurdle since it has been full since August 7, and will likely emanate enough light that may outshine the meteor's luster in the night sky.
