The best viewing will be with the darkest sky you can find. Then, sit back and wait while, looking at the northeastern sky. No equipment is necessary.
One of the most interesting and handsome things anyone can see in the night sky are meteors!
On the nights of August 12 and August 13, Cooke says stargazers all over the Northern Hemisphere should be able to see about 60 to 70 meteors streaking across the night skies - a dip from 2016, which saw more than twice as many meteors per hour, but a bump up from last year's 40 or 50, and still plenty vivid.
In Denver, the best viewing will be Sunday night August 12 into Monday morning (the 13th).
Of course, the one other thing you need to view the meteors is clear skies, and we may have those.
Best viewing time? Well, you might want to take a nap before you head out there.
