August 21st

In addition to the solar eclipse, night time viewing will be great as it is the night of the new Moon.  
Since it will be so dark, you should be able to catch some of the dwindling amounts meteors since the Perseid's remain active through August 26th.

"Ask not what dark skies can do for you, rather,
Ask what you can do for dark skies."
