Shower's radiant point North, Northwest after sunset

 

Simply find a dark, open sky away from artificial lights. Plan to spend a few hours lounging comfortably under the stars. Bring along a reclining lawn chair, have your feet point in a general north or northwest direction and look upward. If you don’t know your cardinal directions, just lie down and look upward. Chill, and enjoy! You might see some meteors.

 

This shower has been known to produce 600 to a thousand meteors per hour, in the past.
In a non-storm year, you can only expect to see around five meteors per hour.  Still, I've read
that this shower's meteors may not be many, but they make up for the lack of numbers by
being spectacular fireballs.  
So, I am hopeful. ^_^ Stargazing_zpsbhpukuzv.gif

 

 

Job 37:14 "...Stop and consider carefully the wonderful works of God."
