    Are you saying the Earth is blocking the Perseids from hitting the
    Satellite?  I don't think so - it wouldn't be a satellite if it didn't orbit
    the earth.  And if it orbits the earth then it can only be protected
    by the earth from asteroids for half an orbit at the most and much
    less for geo-stationaries.
    Perseids occur in all parts of the sky and are most visible straight
    up.  They do however travel in straight lines away from a point in Perseus.
