cosmic fireworks display put on by shooting stars

Inhabitants all over the planet, will be treated on Wednesday and Thursday night to a cosmic fireworks display put on by shooting stars.

The Perseid meteor shower occurs every year as Earth passes through a trail of dusty debris left behind by the Swift-Tuttle comet, and is named after the northern constellation of Perseus from which it appears to radiate.

Earth entered the stream of debris on July 31 this year, but the meteor shower peaks on August 11-12, when Earth passes through the densest part of the debris stream.
