Catch a Falling Star and Put it in Your Pocket
I pretty much missed what there was of the Draconids, but the Delta Aquariid shower should be picking up speed and the moon is just a sliver and the skies are clear. It's time to start looking up. Perseids are the next big one, but there are several other less spectacular showers here and there at this time of year and worth the effort to get your fav beverage and a blanket and park it under the skies.
My cousins came to visit two years ago and it was dark as they were saying their adieus when a brilliant streak zoomed across the skies overhead. One of my cousins was transfixed. She lives in a big city and had never seen a 'shooting star'.
