Evening all,

I've just spent 30 or 40 minutes outside hoping to catch the odd meteor after having cloud for a few nights. I also went out for 10 minutes just before 10 to see how it was looking cloud wise.

On the quick look out, despite it still being fairly light, I saw a very bright flash through light cloud between Casseopia and Pegasus. No movement though, perhaps a head on meteor? If I'd blinked I'd have missed it.

Observing session part two: Went out around 10:20 - 10:30 round abouts with the camera. About 3 minutes after setting up the camera and crossing the yard where I could get a better view I saw an absolutely stunning meteor which seemed to graze the milky way. The trail was fantastic, if it was static at it's longest point, I expect the trail would reach roughly half way from Deneb to Altair. After the biggy, I spotted two more persaids which looked decidedly average and one meteor going roughly west - east which I presume was unrelated to the shower.

Not a bad showing for half an hour I'd say. I'd have loved to have stayed out longer but a) my knee is bad at the moment and was starting to shout, and :) it was getting cloudy once more.
