What a show! I woke up at 3am and drove to a dark sky site about 20 miles north of my home. As I was getting out of my car, I could already see very bright meteors (think fireballs!) dropping out of the sky. From 3:30am to 5:30am, I think there were around 40-50 meteors per hour of varying brightness, but they died off shortly thereafter. I saw some brilliant green ones which left short trails in the sky, as well as tons of quick, dimmer meteors that definitely radiated from the Gemini area. It really was quite a show. I set up my camera to try and capture some of the action but meteor photography is very hard. The shot below is of one piercing the Orion constellation. Not brilliant I know, this was a 30 second exposure. I did catch more but I am trying to figure out how to create a nice mosaic where you can actually see them. I'll post it later if it looks decent.
I hope some of you got to see the show this morning. It really was quite stunning.
