    Looks like right now I may have clear sky's for a change but I believe the neighbor went on vaca and left his back porch light on!! If they are not back by saturday I guess I may need a BB gun to take it out. With my luck though the weatherperson will be wrong, which they usually are and it will be cloudy!!

    About 1AM-2AM your time should be sweet. Look towards the north. The debris should emanate from the constellation Camelopardalis.

    As Jim states it should begin after midnight, peaking a few hours later. Just look to the north celestial pole, if forecast holds true it should be a decent show.

    When I joined ...they said there are no stupid questions so here goes. do you folks watch this shower with your telescopes or naked eye? I am having a blast with my new old scope (2120) but am trying to imagine how I would chase debris falling in the night sky?

    Sadly, over the week, the forecast that night has gotten progressively worse, now it says just straight up 70% chance of showers. So sad.

    Jerry - Except for the very few known truly telescopic meteor showers, all the rest are strictly naked eye observing affairs. No need for any optical aid, which in fact might simply hinder your viewing pleasure.
