    I hope it will be a breathtaking event. If the weather allows, I will try to observe them. Here are some links for more detailed information:

    Is it better to tilt the head back and take in more sky, or gaze a bit over the horizon?

    You should watch out for the constellation of Leo (the lion). Most of the meteors appear to come from its head.

    Cloudy where I was.

    May be luck, but I've seen meteors any odd nights just by waiting patiently. Seems like half an hour usually scores one.
