The Perseids

Call that a shower? I stood on the back lawn for quarter of an hour and saw several planes but only one meteor. It lasted for less than a second.

It was a clear night. Well, clearish. There were clouds around the horizon but the view to the top of the sky was unobstructed. I've forgotten most of my star-craft but this would be a good time and place to relearn it.
