  • Most of the time reclining, facing towards the south at the Summer Triangle.

  • Aug 10 -  Seen 8 Persieds with 5 being very long and bright, yellowish with smoke trails, over a 1 hrs period

  • Aug 11 - No shooting stars seen, over an hour long period, even though I could just make out the bright stars in the Summer Triangle.  Thought I would have been able to see some through the lighter cloud cover.  Cloud cover thickened after 2300 hrs.

  • Aug 12 - Seen 19 Perseids that were mostly bright "Smokers" (leaving smoke trails) and 1 Sporadic, over a 1 hr 4 min period.  A nice outburst of shooting stars around 2320 hrs.
