Perseids: Peak on the night of Aug. 12 and predawn hours of Aug. 13. The first quarter moon will have set before the radiant gets high in the sky, so there will be no moonlight to spoil the show.

Eta Aquariids: Peak May 4–5 predawn.  Southern hemisphere viewers may see one outburst each minute, while northern hemisphere viewers may see less.

Geminids: Peak on the night of Dec. 13. Though there will be strong interference from a waxing gibbous moon, a large number of bright meteors will still be visible which is why the Geminid meteor shower has made it onto Cooke's list.
