The Perseid meteor shower can see as many as 150 meteors an hour and the peak time to see it is before dawn and after dusk on Wednesday.
These particles, which are as small as a grain of sand to the size of a pea, burn up in the Earth’s atmosphere and are visible with the naked eye.
The Met Office is forecasting partly cloudy conditions overnight in the county towards dawn on Wednesday, so any break in the cloud should ensure the meteors can be seen.
Dr Robert Massey, from the Royal Astronomical Society, said: “The shower will be visible all over the UK, as long as the skies are clear.
“Unlike a lot of celestial events, meteor showers are easy to watch and no special equipment is needed, although a reclining chair and a blanket make viewing much more comfortable.”
The peak meteor activity is around 2pm on Wednesday, so the best time to see it should be before dawn and after dusk on Wednesday.
