I suspect you are far enough from the big city (GUAD) lights so you may have a good view of this show. I will try to see this but may be too close to Saint Louis to have clear views. Thanks for posting this. BB

WOW thanks for the memory - many years ago we lived in the Colorado High Country. I bundled up, went out on the deck, lay on a lawn chair and watched Perseids. Sang Rocky Mountain High to myself. Only thing missing was the grass. Nearly froze but what a great memory.

Got up this early this morning and was on my patio at 5:45am.
Saw 12 meteors / shooting stars between then and 6:15am.
It was great.
