It is worthwhile not only for radio amateurs, but also times with the whole family to observe such shooting star showers optically. To do this, you should look for a place in the region that is as dark as possible. Unfortunately, the light pollution in densely populated areas is enormous, so it is difficult to find a place that is sufficiently dark. Helpful are maps on the Internet, which show the degree of light pollution, e.g. https://www.lightpollutionmap.info oder https://darksitefinder.com/. Or ask the local astronomy group, where they go for observation... No matter if you look at the shooting stars, listen to them or use them actively as reflectors - we wish you a lot of fun and "Clear Skies".
