There will also be a good display of a planetary alignment the same nights.
The best viewing is predicted to be just before dawn on the 11th and 12th.
Are any other members going to be out watching? It would be interesting to hear which parts of the world have a better show and see the most activity.

I'm in the PNW just for location.

Mostly they are going to be faint, but they say there should also be some that are quite brilliant and even some that "explode" inside the atmosphere in some amizing displays.

Unfortunately, Monday morning is the last showing. This particular meteor shower happens every August. I'll try to post when the next meteor shower is this year once I hear about it.
