If you are in Scotland for the next couple of days and the night is clear, find yourself a dark spot (no street lighting) and look to the skies, the Perseids Meteor Shower is going to be at it’s best.  You could spot up to 100 flaming objects (shooting stars) in the night sky.  This is an annual event so if the skies don’t clear for you, you’ll just have to come back next year.
