Because I sure the hell didn't. I stood around outside getting bit by mosquitoes with my camera for 15 minutes at 2 AM and didn't see a damn thing! Every time the people on the news say "You can see it with the naked eye!" you can't ever see it. I looked everywhere and I couldn't see anything but the same old stars. Surely on CNN or something they'll interview some idiots from a nowhere town and they'll be like "It was the purdiest thing I ever sawed! There were a bunch of 'em!" And they'll have a video but they won't mention the camera recorded for 6 hours and they fast fowarded the tape. Back when you could "see Mars with the naked eye!" I didn't see anything either. I mean, I live in the Northern hemisphere, I should be able to see these meteors and I didn't see any of it! As I sit here with a sore neck and scratching Mosquito bites, I'm not going to waste my time trying to look at anymore damn "meteor showers" if they even exist since I've never seen any of the ones they claim you can!

Yeah, I saw it. Went outside, watched the stars and listened to the kids on the estate being chased by the police.

I looked for a while, but I was too lazy to walk outside of my dorm, so I probably got screwed by light pollution.

Well, I don't know where the hell it was supposed to be, I had totally clear skies here and didn't see any but it was glowy all around the bottom edges of the sky.

but if you live close ish to a town or city that glow could just be light pollution.

*looks at location* Grr! Louisville is about 10-15 miles north of me and being the biggest city in Kentucky doesn't help either. Probably why then...
