(August 12th) The meteor shower happens around the same time every year and can be viewed anywhere in the Northern Hemisphere.
If you want to see the meteors, go somewhere away from city lights (if possible). Bring a sleeping bag or lawn chair, kick back and watch the skies. Try to look in the direction that the sky is darkest. You will probably see a meteor about once a minute on average (fewer if your sky is light polluted). The meteors will be visible for a few days before and after the peak viewing time, so keep an eye out.
