I love these "heavenly" phenomena - when one can see them it is not to be missed. Here is some brief info and a link for more ..
The next meteor shower is the Perseids on August 12. This year there’s no moonlight to interfere. The best time to watch is from 11 p.m. August 12 until dawn the next morning. The best direction to watch is wherever your sky is darkest. If you have a dark sky, you may see a meteor once a minute on average. The shower is also active for several days before and after its peak.

Enjoy these showers....
