What time is the meteor shower tonight?

what location will it be in?

Report as

Look to the northeast late in the evening far away from city lights if possible (you can't see them very well if the sky is too bright) It will be going on all night but is usually best after midnight. While the meteors will appear to be coming from one area of the sky (if you trace the tracks backwards) they can appear anywhere. Good luck, and btw, I'm an astronomer. :)

2 AM will be the best time to see the meteor shower. Scientists state that after midnight is always the best time for meteor watching. You should look to the east early tomorrow morning, where you will see Jupiter, the moon and finally Venus.

The meteor shower was expected to peak 12:30 - 3 pm ET, Wed, but should continue for a week. Look to the northeast after dark

12:am to 2:00am E.D.T. If you can't see them or have trouble seeing them N.A.S.A. will be giving live coverage of it for free.

You would've seen stray meteors last night, but the real deal started around one o' clock.
