Tonight @ about 00:00 a meteor storm will be seen in Israel, dont know when in other countries, I'm going to shoot.
here is something i found on the subject
http://stardate.org/nightsky/meteors/

Quote:
The next meteor shower is the Perseids on August 12, 2008. After the first-quarter moon sets, around 2 a.m., meteors should be more easily visible until dawn. You may see dozens of meteors per hour.

The article you linked to is two years old but the Perseids are a recurrent phenomenon.

See Wikipedia.
