National Geographic is reporting that you might see between 30 to 300 trails per hour radiating from the constellation Leo. Leo is supposed to rise between 1-3 a.m. depending on your location  in the north eastern part of the sky.

I will have no luck seeing this given the weather here in western WA. If you want to plan out observations, see the next post for a resource that will help you know the sky conditions in advance. It's an astronomer's forecast...
