It's already started in the UK, there's a super clear sky where I am, saw a giant one which lit up the sky, I've never seen anything like it.

This is the clearest meteor shower of the entire year, so be sure to catch it :)

This shows how intense the meteor shower is at what times in your locations. Just leave everything as it is and choose the city closest to where you live, and whether you live in countryside/etc.

For the most part it's going to be strong around 4-5am in whatever timezone you're in... but it's possible to see it around 11pm.
 
10:30pm

Oh, yeah! There's supposed to be a bunch near my birthday (27th) and on the 27th you can see mars closer than ever before. I think it was like the closest in like 2000 years.

Heard about this earlier today. Can't wait.[:
So, what time do they appear for us Pacific Timers?
For Central Timers, such as myself, it's supposed to be happening around midnight. Based on that, you should be looking at 10PM Pacific Time.

It doesn't work like that.

For everyone, regardless of timezone, you should be looking between 10PM and 5AM. The peak of the meteor shower (depending on your timezone) is anywhere from 3AM to 5AM and the start is anywhere from 10PM to 12AM.
