Well, I wasn’t going to stay up past midnight to see the best of it, but I did wander outside tonight at around 11:30 for around 15 minutes to see if I could spot some of the peaking Perseid meteors. My score was:
- three fast moving bright Perseids
- 13 planes
- one polar orbiting satellite
- hints of half a dozen faint Perseids
- oddly enough, the Milky Way was faintly visible from my house
Not bad. But I’m going to bed.
