Perseids meteor shower tonight

The Moon will be close but that won't keep us from seeing the brighter meteors as they strike the atmosphere. It is definitely a hindrance but it you see a few bright ones, then I (and others) will be happy.

Earthgrazers, meteors that skim the atmosphere and appear after sunset are bright, long and spectacular and some might appear in your location.

There also might be an extra flurry of meteors around midnight for about an hour so we shall see.
More information

If you see some meteors tonight let me know . I will post my own . I might even try to take some photos.
