Shooting stars are set to appear late in the evening of the 12th August between midnight and 5.30am, UK time. They are the brightest showers of the year and occur within the constellation of Perseus near the famous Double Cluster. In ancient Greek starlore, Perseus was the son of the god Zeus and the mortal Danaë. It is said that the Perseid shower commemorates the time when Zeus visited Danaë, the mother of Perseus, in a shower of gold. The moon is in magical Gemini! Look to the North East, to catch a shooting star and make a wish!
