80 to 100 meteors per hour. Known as one of the brightest meteor showers!
I'll be watching.
Enjoy!

It was kind of overcast here last night, but I am hoping for better viewing tonight!

Thanks Marly, about what time did you start seeing them?

Enjoy the show tonight.

Hubby was up in the wee hours to try to see it, but I think we are too close to the light pollution of DC. We may drive out toward Shenandoah Valley tonight - late - to give it another try.

Of all the nights for the dark clouds to move in before dusk, it was last night. However, around 2 AM I did get to see two meteors.

I couldn't sleep last night so I went out at 4 am and looked up at the sky. I saw a meteor. I got tired of looking up so I decided to lie down on the hood of my car so my neck wouldn't hurt. I saw several more meteors and it was very peaceful with the katydids singing.

That sounds so nice Cindy, I went out after midnight and sat in my car to watch but I fell asleep and woke up at 2:30, but later I found I was watching the wrong way too! Also some friends of mine went out after 10:30 and saw some. I am going to try that tonight.

Marly thanks for posting I enjoy watching these things as well.

hugs
