Perseid Meteor Shower Reaches Second Day

Skywatchers have enjoyed another night of "fantastic views" as the annual Perseid meteor shower reached the second day of its peak. The shower was expected to produce a display of up to 80 meteors per hour, according to NASA.

"A waxing crescent moon will set before the shower becomes active, setting a perfect stage for meteor watching," said the US space agency. Space enthusiasts in the UK and US have already captured images of the show.
