Meteor shower

The most anticipated date of summer for lovers of astronomy is here.

Friday 12 Aug 2022
From: 23:00

On the night of 12-13 August, look out for the Perseid meteor shower - known in Spain as San Lorenzo's tears - because of its proximity to the day when the Christian martyr is remembered throughout many parts of Spain.

The peak time will be from 22:00 on 12 Aug (approx) until 04:00 on Aug 13, when up to 200 meteors are visible per hour.
