The Perseids is forecast to be particularly spectacular this year with at least double the normal frequency of meteors as the Earth will be passing through a dense part of the comet Swift-Tuttle's debris field. The moon will set around midnight and so any time after that is the best time to look when the sky is at its darkest.

Is that tonight? I thought I may have missed it last night, overcast where I was.

Do you know if the skies will be clear tonight?

Use the app Acc Weather, it will give you hourly forecasts for wherever you are including cloud cover.

Might be no harm I suppose if I wrap another roll or two of tinfoil around my cardboard box. Emergency shelter. The tinfoil makes it impervious to small meteorites and gamma rays.
