Have you ever tried for hours to see a shooting star when you have been told there is a meteor shower? We have documented where to look and at what time to help you catch the best shooting star shows of 2017. Enjoy!
This is not a definitive list of meteor showers for the year as we've not included the less spectacular showers. All meteor showers and lots of information about what to look out for in the night sky can be found in our Moon Diary and Astro Moon Calendars.
