Best place? Anywhere without cloud and light pollution.

Best time? The closer it gets to dawn, the greater your chances of seeing the Perseid shower tonight.

However it's not the best year to see them, as the moon is three-quarters full, with the light from it blotting out part of the view.

After midnight.
Saw about 5 for a short period around 11 pm. One was really spectacular. A trail of sparks
