Knowing my luck it will be cloudy, although the one last summer or the summer before was very 'spectacular' indeed.
I love watching stuff like this... it's best to be prepared though. You know, tyipical sky-watching stuff... beer... smokes.... duct tape... etc.
I look forward to the show :D

For those of you that watched it how did it go?
All we had were clouds all night, it also didn't help that it was 8 am and quite bright so i didn't see a thing!
Course theres always tonight!
