Tonight should be the best for us this side of the pond - clouds permitting.
Which they won't. 100% cover here.
Nothing seen here despite the very clear sky last night. But I suspect that we were too early. We went out at 11:20 and gave up at 11:40. That's local time, of course, but being further east than the UK I hoped the two would equalise out and we'd see something.
Thinking hard about whether or not to set the alarm to go out about 1am or 2am tonight.
Repositioned my security camera for the night however, just had a scan through and there is nothing to see last night which is a shame as it was a very clear night
I'm able to set he sky from the comfort of bed thanks to the roof hatch, but cloud last night and a party down the road put a stop to that.
That is your own fault for gatecrashing it
We had a group over for a combination birthday and meteor party, set up several couches out on the driveway so the old neck would not grate like a rusty farm gate in the morning, very disappointing with the viewing, but had a good time draining several liquor bottles, and a few cases of beer.
Set the alarm for 4 AM when the peak was to occur, didn't see very much action, (at least outside that is) maybe about 7 good ones, but lots of very small ones.
Disappointing for this time around.
Clouded out here last night. Tonight looks a bit more promising if I can stay awake.
One relatively bright star directly overhead and a few faint ones dotted around but very little else.
Just waiting for the streetlights to go out at 10.30.
I'm simply waiting. Trying not to fall asleep I want to leave it an hour later than last night.
Lights still not out. Will wait until,11.15 then call it a night
Came in at 00:50 after another fairly rubbish night's meteorite spotting. After 25 minutes only about 4 or 5 seen. None of them spectacular. Nowhere near the 100 an hour that was reported the previous night.
Six to eight an hour would be a normal night out in the sticks.
Some of those long exposure images out today look very suspect anyway, we've been duped.
