The Perseids meteor shower, which reached its peak on Monday night, occurs when the Earth passes through a stream of dusty debris from the Swift-Tuttle comet. The tiny fragments of ice and dust - they range in size from a grain of sand to around as big as a pea - hit the Earth's atmosphere at some 60km/s (134,000 mph). Most of the Swift-Tuttle comet debris is more than 1,000 years old, according to a NASA description. If you missed this years peak, don’t worry, the shower is visible from mid-July each year.
