Wed, morning 2:00AM EST or UTZ0600 The dog wanted out. I got some beautiful looks at the sky, and a fantastic meteor trail lasted about two seconds, lit up the hill top and the out buildings, only about a fifteen degree arc but super bright.

Nice nice last night, mostly clear. We started at around 10:30 PST and immediately saw several streakers and a fireball. Then it died down for a bit, ended up seeing several more up until 12PM. Pretty good show, seemed like more than in previous years.

I was up at 3AM and took a peek... Persius was really high up in the sky the radiant was almost directly overhead, very cool. I saw a couple that looked like dim stars brightening then winking out, right at the radiant center... I think those were direct-on meteors. also saw one looking smeared out just off radiant, very cool.

Also noticed some faint auroral activity!

All in all, a good year this year!

The watch dog woke me up twice last night, Slight over cast that I could see stars through. No Meteors however a thunder storm passing by to the North would light the whole horizon from time to time.
