Perseids 2016

 
From http://www.sciencealert.com/
If you’re as much of a sucker for a good sky-watching event as we are, you’re not gonna want to miss this year’s Perseid meteor shower.  
Experts are predicting that, at its peak on August 11-12, we’re going to get twice as many meteors that usual, and when it comes to the Perseids, that’s a hell of a lot. 
 
"Forecasters are predicting a Perseid outburst this year with double normal rates on the night of August 11-12," Bill Cooke of NASA's Meteoroid Environments Office said in a statement. "Under perfect conditions, rates could soar to 200 meteors per hour."
Best to see from a dark sky sight (not in the middle of a city), best after midnight and best without any binocular or telescopic aids.. just your Mark I eyeballs.
