    We were out on a hill to just after midnight last night. Nowhere near 60 to 100 an hour. We caught about 5 really bright, long trail one and maybe 10 minor 'hits' over 2 hours. . .

    tonight should be the best night

    There's a cool google sky app for Android users, for them to simply find a constellation.

    Any particular time?

    It's not a bus, lol.
    The meteor shower lasts about a week while the Earth travels through an ancient comets debris trail.
    So it's happening even as i'm typing right now.

    Nearly completely forgot! thanks for the heads up!

    i hope i see them :-)

    Me and the boys laid down on the trampoline last night but only saw one. Will try again tonight. Trouble is its chucked it down today so everywhere is wet through.

    After a whole day of rain it's clearing up nicely here now, hope we get some good ones tonight.
