You can see the Perseid Meteor shower  after sunset on Aug 11 into the wee hours of Aug 12. 

About 150 meteors an  hour. 

Find a dark place,  lay on your back so you won't get a crick.  The best seeing will be after moonset around 1:15 Am and on until dawn

You don't need binoculars.   Your best seeing will be with unaided vision.

Ba'al, do I need a tinfoil hat for this event?  :P

Just  your eyes will do fine.  This event happens each year as the earth plows through the debris in space left by the Perseid comet.  There are other meteor shows  produced by other comet trails.
