But the moon will not fully rise until around 11pm on Sunday, giving viewers plenty of time to observe the dark skies.
Remember, any competing source of light - city lights, street lamps, vehicle headlights, cellphone screens, the Moon, etc - will prevent our eyes from completely adjusting to the darkness, and thus prevent us from seeing all the meteors that will be flashing overhead. Along with an increase in fainter meteors, chances are we will see an increase in bright fireball meteors as well (or at least that's the hope!).

Also, keep bright sources of light (the Moon included) out of your direct field of view.
