Alls I know is that tonight, Saturday, August 11, 2012 will be your best chance all year to see a meteor shower.
What I don’t know is what the cloud / fog situation will be like, but you could see a lot of blue sky this AM so that bodes well.
Here’s what it will look like:

Oh wait, here’s the real deal, from Christmas Tree Road, a half-decade back, August 12th, 11:41 PM:
Canon 5D, 15mm 2.8 Fisheye, f/5.6, 5 seconds, ISO 1600
But people, you need to dress warm – gloves, beanies, etc and maybe a sleeping bag if you’re serious.
All right, see you there!
Shooting stars never stop/ even when they reach the top.
