This video from the 2015 Perseid meteor shower (this one was filmed in Utah) shows what one can typically see with the naked eye. Amazing, isn't it?
I'm probably going to miss it again. I won't be near a dark open area, and it's supposed to be partly cloudy here, anyway, but if you'd like to know more, here's info on when, where and how to see it (from Space.com).
For those of you lucky enough to witness this amazing meteor shower, enjoy!
