Perseid meteor showers have impressed thousands of stargazers on the night of August 12th. Across the UK, people looked out for the shooting stars, which are a result of material falling from the tail of Comet Swift-Tuttle.
While the Perseid meteor shower happens every year between July to August, supposedly the best views were seen on Monday night.
Several people took to Twitter to post photos and to share their experiences.

Matt Dobson, a forecaster with MeteoGroup, said: “Central and eastern England, southern Scotland and south east Wales would have had a really clear night, so I would have thought that if people had been out they would have at least caught a glimpse.”
