Here on the east coast the best viewing time this morning Sunday Aug. 11 is between 2:40 am (moonset) and 5:51am (first light).
Find a dark spot, give your eyes a while to adjust to the darkness, and if you can you should lie down...and, oh yeah, be patient.

I worked for twenty years at 7000 ft. in the California Mountains around this time. It was an annual ritual for us to hike up above the light line for this shower.

There is no need to be patient. 3 per minute is a low average from my memory, with a whole sky tail at least every 5 minutes.

I witnessed one tonight from WNY.

Hauling ass from S to N..

I thought it was just a shooting star until it broke up.

Question.
What is a shooting star?

No, it wasn't a shooting star. Way too fast.

You still didn't answer my question, so I'll answer it for you.

A shooting star is a meteor. Meteors are known to break up. I have seen it happen on more than one occasion myself.

To answer your question...It was without a doubt an anal probe launched from Saturn..It hit me straight in Uranus!

I didn't see any meteors. The shower must not have reached Chicago yet.

Maybe that's why the sky is so hazy tonight...of all nights!
