    It should have started about 12, and should peak between 2-4. I just went out briefly but conditions aren't so hot. It's hard to find a good spot around here, and it's partly cloudy. Im probably not gonna bother going back out. I was spoiled by the Leonids a few years ago me and my neighbor stood in our driveway for 2 hours and there was barely a moment when there wasn't a meteor in the sky. That was with a lot of light pollution, that was a crazy shower.
