This annual meteor shower will reach its peak late tonight m, early Tuesday morning. It may have some competition however, what with the nearly full moon that will also be glowing in the sky but still worth a watch.

According to AccuWeather Astronomy Blogger Dave Samuhel, "This shower happens to be one of if not the best in the Southern Hemisphere,”.

People living south of the equator may count as many as 40 shooting stars per hour at the height of the celestial light show, the American Meteor Society (AMS) said. This includes Australia, New Zealand, Africa and South America.

If you notice on the map we happen to be in one of the best areas to see the show and it will even be active again tomorrow night in case you miss it this evening.

Happy star gazing!
