Best Perseid meteor shower in years due to moon being new dark. Best after midnight Wed. going into Thurs. Sit comfortably in a lounge chair, face south and keep your eyes open.
I will remember a few nights straight of the Geminids showers while sailing thousands of miles from land till the day I die. Probably more than 100 an hour in different colours lighting up the sky. It was so clear you could almost read by the starlight. One of those few times you can use the word awesome in its correct usage.
