    I just think this is weird..
    I see dozens on a "normal" night..
    and th3am thing is the peak .. so when we will supposedly get bombarded by 400/hr..
    We should be seeing 10 - 30 an hour at least leading up to the peak..
    I don't get it..
    I read the peak is 2am EDT .. 1 hour away and I've not seen a one..
    got some lightning bugs in my images though..
    May have to live with that

    The sky just cleared here in my neck of the woods so I'm headed out to see if anything is visible here in Central Texas. I've been watching the NASA TV feed pretty closely and only seen what looked like one on there in the last hour. Sure hope it picks up. It would be fantastic if we could view a shower like the 1966 Leonids meteor storm when there was an estimated 60 per second.

    Good luck Y'all

    Reporting in from Chicago. Clear sky here. I only saw 1 when i was just walking out of my house and wasn't really looking for it. After I finish my telescope setup, I looked for it for 40 minutes and saw nothing. Go figure.

    It is white and goes slow. I am gonna jump back out there in an hour. Hopefully it picks up by then. Then again I am in Chicago.

    Reporting from SoCal, Edwards/Mojave area. Observed one meteor during a 3 minute observation period. It was bright white and very slow moving, in the area of Ursa Minor. Skies here are somewhat hazy and there are a few light clouds around, but should be fine for meteor watching. Going to set the camera out soon and see if I can capture anything.
