Tonight is supposed to be the biggest night to see these. Does anyone know a really good dark place for looking at them that would be accessible after midnight? I live in North Raleigh. Thanks

We were discussing the Perseids in this thread:
Where to view Perseids?

Morehead Planetarium uses Jordan Lake for their sky watching sessions, and that is probably pretty dark.

Cloud cover is looking like a bigger problem than light pollution this evening.

We had cloud cover last night. And the moon behind the clouds made it seem so much brighter. I have my fingers crossed for tonight but so far it doesn't look good.
