Last Night’s Meteor Count

3.

Not bad, really, considering I was only out in my back yard from 10:45 pm to 12:15 am, and the sky was partly cloudy and hazy for the first 45 minutes. And my back yard is by no means dark–though there is one spot where the street lamp from the alley and porch lights from neighbors are all blocked by trees or garages.

Two of the three were very bright (one around 11:00 pm Central, the other at 12:15 am Central–I decided to go inside on a good note), brighter than the brightest stars. I imagine they were spectacular in darker skies.
