The Perseids, which are often visible in August, occur when dust particles enter the Earth’s atmosphere at 132,000 mph, producing a large flashes of light.
However, this year astronomers are predicting an ‘outburst, with more than double the number of meteors appearing than normal.
Neil Mahrer, of the Jersey Astronomy Club, said: ‘It will be the best show for a long time, and we might see 200 meteors each hour. The last time I saw a shower that good was in the 1980s.’
The stars should become more visible after 1 am on Saturday, when the moon sets, making the sky much darker.
