Also, y'all need no special equipment to see the meteor shower!

Step 1: Find a viewing spot (most probably your house balcony, cause you can't leave your house due to MCO)

Step 2: Switch off all the lights (ask for neighbors to do so too cause you need all city lights to off)

Step 3: Wait patiently

Step 4: Make a wish when you saw the meteor shower

Good luck, peeps!
