I saw at least 25 and my camera saw more. I am still reviewing the pics. This was on morn of Aug 12, from ~2:00 am to 5:00 am. I have a few shots on my gallery uploads. Real problem was where and when to point the camera.

We had a club night at the local airport - 9.00 pm until 4.30 am (the last two survivors).

I was too busy scoping - so saw about a dozen. Many of them were down low diving towards the horizon.

My astro pals who were laying face up on recliners counted over 40 per hour - highest counts were from midnight onwards - quite sparse before that. We are on GMT -8 near Vancouver, BC. The best sight all night was around 3.00 am when Venus, Jupiter, The Pleiades and Taurus were all rising over the trees.
