The Perseids from Pittsburgh, PA was a bust.

Partial clouds around 10:30 pm. Saw a fairly bright one at 10:50 pm, which may have been a sporadic as it went north to south. Clouds began to get heavier and by 2 am it was completely clouded over. I quit when I began to feel the raindrops.

That one coupled with the one I saw on Tuesday night brings my total Perseids count for 2004 to 2 !! I guess my ZHR is not very high.



> Hello List,
> Pretty nice show here tonight. Had been cloudy and
> raining off and on most of the day and into the early
> night, but by ~ 2:30 AM, the skies opened up. I saw
> several really nice ones with persistent trains. One
> in particular was great. It went just about entirely
> across the sky, almost fading out once and then
> flaring back up at the end. I saw two at a time a
> couple of times. Then the clouds/fog started rolling
> back in and closed down the show. I estimate there
> were a little more than 60/hour during the hour and a
> half or so that I watched.
> How was it for some of the rest of you?
> Best regards,
