    Peak is projected for Aug. 12, 2005

    CNN says
    In 2005, the Perseids are expected to reach their maximum on August 12. Peak activity is unfortunately predicted for the daylight hours across North America.

    Sky watchers are thus encouraged to watch during the predawn hours of Friday, August 12 and again during the early morning hours of Saturday.

    Observers will be favored by an absence of bright moonlight during these intervals. At midnorthern latitudes, moonset occurs on the evening of August 11 at around 11-p.m. local daylight time and around 11:20 p.m. the following night.
