I've seen any! I have to watch them. I might just convince my father to take me up the hill near me to watch. It's pretty rural round here anyway, but a hill is cooler.

So anyone have any sky-watching tips?
Yea yea obviously look up, but any star constellations i need to know/direction to face in the sky?
Or would the meteors be obvious to see and there would be no problem to it?

The annual Perseid meteor shower will reach its peak during the early hours of Monday, but it will be visible from Saturday night until Tuesday morning.

"If we're lucky, on Sunday night and Monday morning we might see as many as 100 meteors an hour," said Dr Robert Massey from the UK's Royal Astronomical Society.

"But the usual caveat applies: you still need good weather."

Both hemispheres will receive good views but the prime locations will be Western Europe and North America.

Watchers will get the best of the display from about 2200 BST (2100 GMT) on Sunday 12 August, which will peak just before sunrise on Monday 13 August.


If any of you guys get pictures, please share

I think i saw some the other night (I live in western-Europe). But I'm not really sure, because it wasn't that bright. I thought I saw a small white stripe in the sky two times, but you dont know where to look, and the sky is big.
And what is more, there's been a bloody purple nose and some bloody purple clothes that were messing up the lobby floor. It's just apartment house rules so all you 'partment fools remember : one man's ceiling is another man's floor.
#19
Aw I cant watch them.

I have to get to bed real early so I can wake up real early for work tomorrow.
Sat in a lab, curing diseases. They actually LET me play with chemicals!
#20
So are they gonna be at 9 or 10 o'clock? I don't know whether we're now on GMT or BST in England.
Looking to buy a Fender Jagstang, u sellin?

wow!
It says "Hundreds"....so I think it's safe to say I'll see a few if I stay up!
Plus its the new moon, and you'll be able to see Mars, which is awesome.

Anyone advise me on which direction to look? I'm in North London, my bedroom window faces east/south east.
Or do I just look up at the sky?

Dude... if you can't see the meteors in one direction, try looking in another. Repeat if neccessary

Any time tonight
I'll normally go out between 10pm and 4am

Any time after 4am and it gets too light.
It's best to go to a park or some place away from any shopping center with lots of lights.

the other night we were smoking cigars in a dark park, and i swear we saw a UFO. or something weird. it was this blinking light that was under the north star (very far from, but under). and it kept flickering, changing colors, thrashing around a little bit, then staying still. then these little lights started breaking off it and orbiting around it. i thought my eyes were playing tricks on me but my friends saw it too.
