That is unfortunate mate. I'm gonna have a look out tonight but it has been raining all day, so once again I am not getting my hopes up!

Happy Gazing people

I'm in the same boat here, they are like big orange clouds outside, combination of the street lights and low cloud!

Cloud cover last night where I am so unfortunately no show............ will have to rely on the BBC for a small video clip for posterity......

The ones I saw on Tuesday were definitely the most vivid although there were only two of them..

It's quite clear here today so I'm going to have a look and see tonight, might catch the tail end!

last night was the first night all week i wasnt covered with clouds... they felt nice...

anyway so i finaly got to see the meteors, it was very cool i saw at least 3 or 4 every ten minutes, two of them were so bright they let out a strong sudden flash halfway through their percieved path.

unfortunately none of them came flameing from the sky landing at my feet like i always do wish one would.

btw im wondering, if these are all comeing from the same place as science says they are, then why do i see them coming from all directions in the sky?

the news articles have said to look to the northeast and they would come southwesterly, i have seen every variation of direction in what i saw last night,

can anyone explain to me how this is possible that it would be from some river of debris we are passing through as qouted in the op if they enter the earth at all angles and directions of travel?

Fantastic views here in BC on the Island, both days were very clear and the show was remarkable, 45 year old and never seen as many "shooting stars" as the past two nights......

Wish I knew how to take time laps of the night sky because it was very cool.
