One of the most stunning events in the stargazer’s calendar is the annual Perseid meteor shower!
A meteor shower’s activity is expressed by its zenithal hourly rate or ZHR. At its peak on August 12-13, the Perseid shower will have a ZHR of 80-100 meteors-per- hour.
This year, the Perseid meteor shower is set to peak on the night of Saturday, August 12 , although you’ll still get excellent visibility on the nights of the 11th and 13th.
Look for a great place in the park and enjoy the heavenly spectacle over Edinburgh.
