Best seen from 12am-5am Saturday (in half an hour!) but won't be the best view because of the full moon! frown

Not sure if this is the right place to post but ah well!

did anyone see anything? I wasn't sure if it was overcast last night...
The last couple of previous years, the perseids shower has been amazing. But they were on clear moonless nights. I saw 17 streaks across the skies in 20 mins!!!

for a clearer night tonight.

yeah, you can normally see them for about 3 consecutive nights.

Best advice I can give is to try and get away for nearby light pollutions (street lights etc), let your eyes adjust to the dark (don't look diectly at any lights for about 20-30mins) and the later you look, the better really. And then



and enjoy smile
