2022-2023 meteor shower​s 

A meteor shower where a number of meteors are seen as originating or radiating, from a point in the night sky called as a  Radiant. The meteors are result of trails of cosmic debris left beind in comet or asteroid paths. These tiny particles are called as meteoroids that burn out and light up due to friction upon entering Earth's atmosphere at extremely high speeds. Organizations like The Meteor Data Center of the IAU lists over 900 suspected meteor showers of which about 100 are well established.

The Perseid meteor shower is one of the biggest astronomical events of the year, taking place each August.
