will you see them on august 13th at 1:00am or is it to late

About 700 BC it became the eighth month when January and February were added to the year before March by King Numa Pompilius, who also gave it 29 days.

The meteors vary in brightness, so finding a dark place is best if you want to see a lot of them. A reasonably dark suburban area should show 20-40 an hour and an observer in the very dark skies in the boonies of New Mexico may see 100 to 200 an hour.
