    anytime after 1 am is prime time. They emanate from the NE but will be all over the sky so where you look won't matter much. The 11th is max, I was out looking a few dys ago and saw a few so this weekend could be a great show.

    I'll be out tonight. I love those. Sometimes, there are so many that it's hard to catch them on scope. Good stuff. Thanks for the reminder, Vash!

    We've been anticipating this for 2 weeks.
    Can't hardly wait- we get a clear sky on Sunday late/Monday early a.m.
    Going out on the back balcony and then ...keep watching the skies!

    Tonight through Tuesday with Sunday as the best of all. We have to rotate into the right position to see them burn up in the atmosphere, that doesn't happen till 1 am no matter where in the continental us, could be the same time world wide but I've never bothered to check that out.
