1:45 a.m. local--was out for an hour and saw about thirty. And that was in poor light conditions. Gonna get a cup of Java and head back out!

Same here, we've been getting a lot of cloudy and thunderstorms the past week or so, and it doesn't look likely to change immediately...

We had beautifully clear skies. Out here in the country, it is dark enough to see the Milky Way. But I doubt I saw more than 20 meteors over the course of an hour.

Saw two very nice fireballs, almost on the order of bolides but no explosions, in the first 10 minutes and decided to call it quits.

Due to Mrs OD's collection of LED garden lights I could not tell if the almost-bolides cast shadows.

We saw the Space Station last night heading east.
