Is anyone going to try and see the meteor shower tonight? I am going to my local park with a few people i know. The weather seems to be decent for this where I am at(Pittsburgh). Hopefully all the lights from the city won't make the shower too hard to see. I don't think I will be able to get anything good with my point-and-shoot camera, so I am not going to bother.

Cool. I think I might stay up and watch the action.
We have rain here tonight
I might venture outside if I'm still awake...
I hope it will be visible here. So far, I see none. I'd be suprised if I see one though.

Is it visible in the Eastern US?
I just got back from going out. I only saw one meteor the whole 2 hours I was out. The first location had too much light from the city to see anything. The 2nd location was better, but I only saw one when I first got there. There were some storms in the distance and some of the lighting from them lit up the cloud tops. I would have needed to be well outside the city to see anything more. If I had the money I would not mind taking a trip to one of my state's parks and watch the stars, or this meteor shower..
I took a gander at the sky for awhile, and didn't really see much. In addition to this, it's very humid outside... it was as if I was laying inside a hot and soggy beach towel - yuck!
So, naturally, I did as most people would do, and called it quits when the bugs started invading my personal space.
Ah well. Better luck next year!
I didn't make it!
I forgot all about it until later but I did get to see it. Did anyone stay up until 2 AM (EST time) to see the peak? I guess that was when it was gonna get really good but I didn't stay up that late.
No! I'm Spamacus!

I was up until almost 4 AM Eastern time, but the sky never cleared up for me. It probably wouldn't have made much of a difference since I live fairly close to Boston.
