From what I've read this seems to be a northern hemisphere phenonemon mainly.
Have any observers from the Southern Hemisphere seen anything decent?
As that's where I'm located, is it worth going outside these winter nights?
Unfortunately for those in the southern hemisphere, the event won’t be quite so spectacular, with experts predicting that only a third of the meteors will be visible to you this year. But don’t let that stop you! Ian Musgrave at Astroblog has some advice for Australian skywatchers to follow this week:
"People around the latitude of Darwin have the best chance of seeing meteors, possibly as many as one every 3 minutes at the peak. Next is places with the latitude of Cairns, then with the latitude of Mackay (like Port Headland and Mt Isa), and the places with the latitude of Alice Springs.
