The night sky will be lit up by shooting stars over the next two nights as Earth passes through debris from Halley’s Comet.
The Eta Aquarids meteor shower appears above the northern hemisphere in late April or Early May every year.
Depending on the weather, stargazers will be able to see between 10 and 20 shooting stars an hour over the next two nights.
The light show is due to reach its peak tomorrow night – with the shooting stars at their most visible after midnight each night.
The Eta Aquarids are associated with Halley’s Comet which orbits the sun once every 76 years.
It was last seen from Earth in 1986 and will not be visible again until 2061.
The earth passes through its orbit twice a year – leading to the Eta Aquarids in the summer and the Orionids in October.
