A bit of a frustrating night here at Bunbury, with drifting cloud banks, although some breaks between 21.40-00.00 and 02.30-03.15 UT. I shouldn’t complain as the wx forecast was for complete cloud cover. In total, the 2 video cameras (3.8 mm f/0.8 pointing SSE and 12 mm f/0.8 pointing N) caught 61 meteors of which 19 were Perseids.

I fared a bit better the previous night (Aug 11/12), although again there were many cloud banks moving through. A total of 106 meteors, of which 25 were Perseids.

Go well!
