Got yer meteor shower info right here. Park your lawn chair (paper toweling?) after 11 pm (pref. after midnight) or right before dawn.
Maybe you’ll see a fireball. As luck would have it, the Perseid meteor shower is the “Fireball Champion.” Jupiter, Venus, and the Moon will show up together just as the meteor shower reaches its peak. A dim Mars and bright Jupiter will be visible right before the sun rises, above the eastern horizon.
Best viewing spot? Rural America, of course!
