So will you be one of those who watch this tonight? Personally I live where not much sky is visible from our house and I am not so interested as to go out at night to see such things. Better things to do in the dark!

I'll be out there if the sky is clear.

If I don't do the usual and fall asleep on the settee until the early hours!

Yes. I'll be walking up to a relatively dark, secluded area near to my home to make my observations in the wee small hours. This area is earmarked for a big housing development very soon, so I'd better make the most of it.

PS. It'll be a long night as I plan to watch the athletics and golf as well!

Lucky to see the Sun (daytime) or the Moon let alone a few bits of shrapnel with this so called Summer.

nothing seen. usually a white line skimming across the sky. Seen quite a few in my time but disappointed tonight as on holiday and waited a few hours with my teenager son.

Next year perhapse.

I was out staring upwards at the heavens due south between 1am and 2am. wow! Saw one really bright fireball streak and about 5 shorter-lived, less-bright meteor streaks, all moving from north to south. Luckily, the light from the full moon did not hinder me too much as it was way over in the eastern sky and not in my field-of-view.
