It's a gorgeous night and will get clearer.

I'm likely to head to Arthur Ontario and watch from the sailplane field there at York Soaring

As it's quite dark but really anywhere outside city loom should provide a decent show . Stars are already showing even this early (8.45 pm ) so should be nice and clear later.

Look to the northeast after midnight for the best show. That's away from the moon and the Perseids are known fireballs and coloured meteors.

I'm geographically screwed when it comes to seeing anything cool like meteor showers and not just because of perceived Northern Hemisphere bias at times.
