Not sure if anyone posted about this but the peak is tonight . Light pollution makes it almost impossible to stargaze and because of the Lock down I can't go to the countryside or anything like that ! good news tho its a new moon so the sky is going to be darker .

There's a free program you can download for this called Stellarium, very handy for just naked-eye observations

Went out looking for the starlink train last night... Saw a couple of nice meteors though.

Weird to be seeing so few planes going over these days

Might have a little look, but prefer watching with other people (especially patchy showers like the Lyrids)... can't do that this time.
