Well the peak is around now every year, but you see many 1-2 weeks before and after. Disappointed we have not seen too many this year. We spotted 3-4 one day last week and despite looking out most nights we’ve only seen one more. Last night was superbly clear and I expected to see at least a couple – 1! Still they are great to spot, so will look out during the festa  and afterwards (vino consumption allowing) :-[

Thanks, it made me more determined (and stay up later), spotted 4 last night and one went right across the sky!

Glad you saw something. I went to a festa and forgot all about it until I got home then sat out for 30 minutes but saw nothing except for beautiful star studded sky.

Well it's just dropped a lot more for us outside in the last half hour or so... Not too sure about our own temperatures mind you!

Might be worth keeping an eye to Il Meteo for Sunday for your area. I've looked at a few places and it says thunderstorm for them all around 17:00, but also looking at the "altri dati" it gives you the % chance of grandine (hail), it was high for all the areas I looked at. Of course it may (hopefully) come to nothing.
