The Perseid meteor shower, an annual celestial event, is all set to return on Wednesday night. First spotted by American space agency Nasa's meteor-tracking cameras on July 26, the Perseids are predicted to reach their peak before dawn on August 12, giving the best chance to witness one of the biggest meteor showers of the year.
It is also believed that this year's conditions are as near to perfect as can be.
